life after mold?
    #469189 - 11/25/01 02:13 PM (15 years, 17 days ago)

Sorry if this has been asked numerous times, but I couldn't find it specifically addressed in old posts.
If a cake has green mold growing on the mycel, can it be scraped off with no probs? Or perhaps it would be possible to scrape off the green mycelium and then case it?
Has anyone tried this with success?
Any advice appreciated.
Thanks.

Damnit! I figured as much, but never hurts to ask.

I successfully cut mold off of cakes before and they can go on to produce some very nice shrooms. I first spray the mold
spots with lysol, let it soak in a while and then cut fairly deep
with a sterilized knife until I see nothing but mycellium (I want
to remove the lysol as well as the mold). This is a bit of a
pain because I have to re-sterilize the knife between each
successive cut and it does not always work, but it is worth it
to salvage a cake.

Thanks, Evolving. I will give it a shot. Would hate to give up without a fight.

i was able to cut green mold off of 5 contaminated cakes, made 2 casings out of them, and the mold didn't come back to either. i think the main trick is making sure to dab the moldy spot immediately with h2o2 to keep minimize spore spreading, then i cut the cakes about in half, chucking the contaminated half. i also misted the chunks with a 1:10 mix of 3% h2o2 before breaking them up and casing.. hope this helps...

I just found a small green mold patch on my newest casing, it's about the size of an eraser head. The mold was on the far side of my casing and there were no pins or shrooms growing around it, so I cut it out. When cutting, I found several other small patches of green mold in the mycelium, not a good sign. Anyway, ont he other half of my casing, I have tons of nice mushrooms coming up, and I mean really nice. They have good color and good shape and don't seem to be affected by the green mold at all. Maybe the mycelium is winning the battle on that side of the casing.
As I said, the mushrooms and pins look great. Do you think it would be ok to eat these?
