Storing in freezer?
    #4529569 - 08/13/05 10:11 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Quick question.....

I got some mushrooms a month ago, didn't have time to dry them and so stored them in the freezer. Now thinking that wasn't such a good idea - are they now ruined or still good to eat once defrosted? Any advice welcome....

Thanks, K.

I have never done this but from what I have heard it fucks them up yes. Only one way to find out thaw them out and see. If anything they will just be slime or slimy when thawed out but still active. So just throw them in the blender and make a smoothie with so fruits and shit.

Never done it, but I have also heard it's not the best thing to do with fresh mushrooms.

It is possible if the mushrooms are cracker dry though. There is only one way to find out. Let us know!

It is not at a all a good thing to do.
Once the mushrooms thaw out, they will form a blueish/green mold on it. Not only does this contamninate the shroom, but also freezing causes the shroom to be way more non-potent.

I haven't heard anything about a mold, but when you put fresh shrooms in the freezer and then remove them, it causes them to oxidize very quickly, hence they will turn a dark blue color. The only chance you have now is to eat a given amount immediately after removing them from the freezer...otherwise chances are they'll be no good (if you let 'em thaw)

what happens is when the mushies freez,then thaw it breaks down some of thier cellular structure, just like when you freeze bread when you take it out it starts to discintigrate, but when they are dry it turns out fine. In fact a fried of mine keeps his dried ones there regularly

You can still eat the mush they turn into.

You can also try to strain the solids, get all the liquid, after thawing..then add some hydrated lime (slaked lime) in small amounts, and try to get crystals to form...heres a link on the tek..its still experimental, but I'd read through it and give it a shot:
