Hey all. I have been drying some recently picked shrooms in front of a fan for a few days now. I took them out but I am noticing a little green on the stalk of a few of them. I decided to crack them open and the insides are pretty green. Should I ditch them or is this normal? I'm pretty sure it is mold but I want to double check. Any input would be great. Also, after leaving them in front of a fan on high for 2 days, they are still i tiny bit rubbery. When you guys say "cracker dry" should the shroom snap under slight pressure? Thanks again!

More than likely it's just the bluing reaction, which when dry can have a green tint. If it were mold, it would be only on the outside of the fruit and it would rub off with a finger. If it doesn't rub off, it's the blueing and normal.
That being said, even if it were green mold, it's safe to eat. There are no green molds known to mushroom cultivation that are toxic to eat. RR
Since RogerRabbit was totally right I'll do your second one, Ideally yes, They should break under pressure but if your just going to eat them, i mean it doesn't hurt to eat them when their not totally try, in fact some people say they taste better fresh (but that's not either hear nor there) so the point is unless your storing them they don't need to be cracker dry, Take care!
