easiest way to clean shrooms
    #834102 - 08/21/02 07:26 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

hi, i am wondering what is the easiest way to clean shrooms?

When I pick them in the field, they are usually covered in dirt and dung...under a faucet and a gentle flow of water, removing the dirt usually means bruising the caps badly, and completely destroying the stem... is there an easier way?

Also, when my shrooms fruit from the jar cakes, the vermiculite is all over the base of the shroom, where is sprouted from the substrate. This vermiculite is usually very well embedded into the stem, and is hard to remove!! i dont want to eat it.

anyone else have a better idea than washing them under water? (this also makes it take a lot longer to dry )

You can clean off the vermiculite by using a knife and 'whittling' the bit that has the casing material stuck to it. Shrooms are pretty fibrous, which makes them easy to shave.

Alternatively, you can let them dry for a few hours after harvest. Once the surface loses some of its moisture and starts shrinking, the vermiculite often brushes right off.

Dry first, then use a used soft bristle tooth brush.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Dry them as they are. Then you can brush them off with ease.
