URGENT help needed. Half kilo of truffles going fuzzy.
    #4123514 - 05/02/05 03:37 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

A couple of weeks ago I harvested 500g of psy truffles. I left them in the fridge but they don't look as fresh as they were and I think I need to do something now.

I'm away for the next 3 days and can't wait til then.

I have a food dehyrator I could use.

Or can I just put them in the freezer as they are?

Why didn't you dry them? Any fungus will certainly turn to mush within days if not dried.

well why not simply put them in a Dark / Dry and Ventilated space and simply let them dry?

it works very well and i guess that they would simply rot or something in the fridge,
just get the out of there and dry them or slam them in the dehydrator you got,
just dont overheat them!
peace ohm :mushroom2:

My dehydrator has a low heat setting that is perfect.

Should I cut them in half first?

No seriously, I need to get going on this.

Should I cut the big ones in half?

How long will they take in the dehyrator at 90*F?

Look, no offense, but if you're in such a hurry, why are you waiting for approval on such trivial issues?

Yes, use your dehydrator. That's why you have it, right?...

Yes, cut them in half first. Logic tells us that if you cut them in half, they will dry faster.

And it will take anywhere from 12-24 hours to dry them in the dehydrator. It could take longer.

Thnx, I wasn't sure whether cutting the truffles in half would significantly affect strength.

I'm going to dry them now but have one more question.

I was discussing this harvest in another thread a while back and someone said that I should be able to clone (I plan to learn how) from a fresh truffle.

Is it still possible to clone from a truffle after it has been dried?
Is it still possible to clone from a truffle after it has been frozen?

From what I've read on cloning:

Some have had success cloning from dried fruits... you have to rehydrate it and transfer out fresh growth once it has formed, but before the dried flesh starts to contaminate.

Freezing anything not fully dried will cause cell rupturing. The liquid in the cells freezes into ice crystals, which rupture the cell wall... then when you go to thaw it out, you're left with very damaged material. My guess is you won't be able to clone from a frozen fruit that's been thawed out.
