Storage in Honey
    #788159 - 07/31/02 12:06 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

After a little research, I decided to experiment with storing mushrooms in honey. I took 8 or 9 fresh ones, chopped them up, put them in a half-pint canning jar, and covered them with honey. Unfortunately, I was unable to remove a few tiny air bubbles from the jar. Recently I noticed that the mushrooms floating on the top of the honey (in contact with the air bubbles) are turning a dark bluish-black color. Are they rotting? Or, is this something that I don't need to worry about?

So, should I attempt to remove the air, or just leave it alone and allow just the top ones to decompose? Will this render the honey inedible?

If they're still firm and not mushy yet, I guess you could just poke them back into the honey. I've never tried this and recommend drying them first in the future. Good luck.

I tried this too. I dried them all first, and took the smallest ones I had and chopped them up almost into rice size pieces and put them in honey, they are doing fine. I flip them over every now and then since the mushies want to float. I will let you know when I try the mix.

I'm with ^^, I would dry them first.
