dried mushroom, sorta
    #4500851 - 08/05/05 06:54 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i had a mushroom drying in my computer case with a fan blowing on it, and when i checked on it it was all blue. i might have overhandled it when putting it in the comp, but im not sure i touched it that much as the whole shroom is now blue. its not a dark blue, its the regular bruising blue color, and the cap is shaded this color too. the mushrooms doesnt feel moist, but its definately not cracker dry. the stem is still bendable. i dont think i handled it enough for it to be blue all the way around though. any input?

no i dont. its all real

Let it finish drying.

can excess heat during the drying process lead to this bluing?

scat has got your answer though.

I wouldn't put the mushrooms in your computer case. Just get a big fan and fan them out until they are mostly dry and then use some damp-rid in a container to get the rest of the water out

If your whole shroom goes blue during drying it means its not working quick enough, its oxidizing which isnt a good thing for potency... If you can get a computer fan and put them directly on it for 12-24hours and then into a chamber with damp-rid or any desiccant like outputrotation said for a few days till cracker dry (stems should snap not bend) and you can allow for a little bit of blueing but at the start i done what you did and total blue-ing means your not fanning them strong enough

If you pick them and put them straight into a desiccant chamber they will go totaly blue aswell which isnt good
