Psilocybe Cubensis Hunting/Storage
    #4740941 - 10/01/05 03:03 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Well, I'm going hunting this next weekend for some cubes. I have a big cow pasture in which I am going. I am sure I will be able to find plenty of good shrooms.

After I find the shrooms, take them home and be sure I indentified them correctly, what do I need to do with them before consuming?
What techniques do I have to do to the shrooms so I can eat them up?

Thanks.

Lay them out on some newspaper, or paper, or a piece of toilet paper, or a paper towel, or some paper, or a towel, to dry them.

Then fart.

The best is to eat'em fresh :smile:
If you are about to consume them within a month or less then just freeze them in a fridge until the day is coming. If you wish to preserve them for a long time, search this site a bit and RTFM.

So all I do is lay them out and wait?
Is it better to get them fresh or dried out?
Thanks.

fresh for shur. cant some damp-gone-gone or something like that to suck the water out of the air. get them shrooms cracker dry. i've heard the drying process should be done as fast as possible so as not to lose any potency. best of luck, peace

Let em lay out to dry.. It should take three days or so.. Then either eat them or store them in glass.. If you keep them nice and dry and in a dark place inside glass you should be able to trip a few months down the line..
If you want to trip now then eat them fresh.. You can use a tooth brush and a wet paper towel to remove ant loose poop or dirt!

Lay them in front of a fan for 24-48 hours. They should be relatively dry.

After that, get an air tight container, pour some DampRid (home depot, painting section) in the bottom. Put some sort of screen to seperate the mushrooms from the DampRid in that same container. If the mushrooms touch the DampRid, they're ruined.

Leave the mushrooms in that container for several days and every last bit of moisture will be sucked out of them. I store mushrooms in a container with some damprid in it for long term storage.

Freezing is not the best way to go, if there fresh and you put em in a bag and freeze them, you get a blue/black MushrooomMush when they melt. Reason being there 90 percent water. Water expands when it freezes, therefor riping the mushrooms apart, so when they melt they turn to mushy mushies and alot of the water gets extracted. It would work fine it you prefer to drink shroom tea! Which is what i did with them when that happened to me. There shouldn't be much loss of potency
