Best way to store dried shrooms?
    #560816 - 02/23/02 06:37 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

At the moment I've got my last crop of bone dry shrooms in an airtight container in a cupboard. Would you advise putting them in freezer bags and storing them in the freezer for better long term storage?

My suggestion is to grind the little guys up and put them in capsules then put them somewhere cool. They will be good for a long time that way and it's MUCH less inconspicouse if you are looked at by anyone.

Freezing them after they're bone dry is a great way to go.

A couple things--take a cheep-o stick ball point pen and remove the bottom so you have a hard plastic tube. You can use a straw, but those pen casings are perfect. Suck all the air out of the bags before freezing. This is also an aesthetically pleasing way to pass them onto your friends. Double bag.
Along the lines with the post above, you can go one step furthur, and I've done this before with remarkable success--
Grind them into a powder and load into jars [qts, pts, whatever. Fill as high to the top as possible [use jars of appropriate size for this, as you want as little air space as possible]. Tighten lid, freeze. Very inconspicuous and long lasting.
I've read posts where people have put CO2 in these containers, and that could be one step furthur. Depends on HOW long term you're going for, I suppose.

Thanks for the advice. I went a bit silly with my last growing spree and now have an enormous amount that will probably take me about 2 years to get through!! I'll try the freezing method!
