How do I harvest Freshmushrooms?
Hygiene is very important in harvesting your Freshmushrooms. Make sure that your hands and forearms are thoroughly washed and disinfected or wear sterile gloves when you harvest. The optimum time to harvest is right before the spores start to tear and fall. Grab the bottom of the shaft and turn the mushroom from the soil with a gentle motion. It is important to rotate and not to pull since this can damage the mycelium and have a negative impact on subsequent flushes. Freshmushrooms stems often have a bluish tint.
How do I dry Freshmushrooms?
Freshmushrooms dry best on a piece of paper towel that you place on the heater or heat mat (never exceed 30 °C). After 4 days, the mushrooms are dry (they are crispy or break when bent).
How do I store Freshmushrooms?
After drying, the mushrooms can be stored for up to 6 months in an air-tight plastic bag. They do not have to be vacuum packed. Make sure, however, that as much air as possible is squeezed out of the bag so you can store it air-tight. It is preferable to use a plastic bag with a sealing strip.
