freon?
    #830207 - 08/20/02 12:17 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

i recently read a tek that suggested the use of freon to assist in the preservation of mushrooms. Acording th the tek, once you dry them, put them in the freezer in bags with freon..... this supposedly makes them keep for a lot longer period of time than just conventional methods. is there anyone here that can vouch for this? anyone try it?

Freon is not available in the consumer market AFAIK and I don't know how well it would work. Just use CO2. Stick a chunk of dry ice in the bag.

The Freon in Vari-Air is dichlorodifluoromethane (that's a carbon atom with two chlorine atoms and two fluorine atoms instead of the four hydrogen atoms in methane). An alternative to Freon, which should work just as well, is 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane, which is available in big, inexpensive cans from Costco, called Perfect Duster.

this was taken from the tek......im not saying its very practical, just wondering if it works.
