MAGIC MUSHROOMS - Recipes - Drying



Drying


If you bought or hunted mushrooms and you don't want to use them right away then there are two possibilities for storage. You can keep them for about a week in the fridge. If you want to keep them longer than it is better to dry them. However, they lose their 'power' gradually, after a few months dried mushrooms become weaker. The drying of the mushrooms is relatively simple. There are a few possibilities: - Smaller mushrooms, like the Liberty caps, can be put right away in a drawer on a few sheets of paper; they will dry in a day or two. - You can also put them in an oven for a few hours, but keep it at a low setting. Remember that at temperatures far above 40 C or 90 F the active substance psilocin in Cubensis is broken down. - There are special mushroom-dryers on the market: maybe a bit costly for a few magic mushrooms? There are even vegetable or herb-dryers that work with solar energy. Quite useful, but beware of too high a temperature! You can also dry, grind and use the mushrooms in a cake, in soup or sauce. The problem is then how much everybody gets.
