Base of one stem kind of slimy--what to do?
    #608007 - 04/14/02 11:05 AM (22 years, 9 days ago)

I recently harvested a casing and one of the shroomies seemed to be rotting a bit at the base--kind of brownish and slimy, not firm and white. The rest of the batch looked fine. I threw out the bad-looking one but I'm wondering, is the rest of the batch safe? It would be a shame to throw out the whole harvest when they look fine to me. Any ideas?

Slimy probably means bacterial contamination and i wouldn't eat anything from it. Besides, there are other kind of contams that i wouldn't mind, like trich. Anyway, it's your call, just take care.
