Hello everyone! First of all I want to thank you for all the information I could find on this wonderful forum sharing your experiences means a lot. I started trying to grow muahrooms when I realized how much they mean to this world. At this point I've managed to get the tub right and they we're at fruiting point but I needed to leave home for 10 days. Ive asked a friend to lok for them and harvest them, for the subatrate not to rot. He could offer FAe only once a day and it rooted but still managed to collect few. Unfotunatly he placed them straight in the freezer and now when i tried to dry them they got blue to black. Are they still ok to try? Idk what to do with them I throwed away the box becauze it was green. Now i'm on my way to a new setup. Hope to find some help. Thank youu

I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be fine to eat. The blue is a good thing, it is oxidation of the active compounds... Often, very blue mushrooms are considered to be more potent.

Freezing your mushrooms resulted in water molecules crystallizing and bursting the cell walls! There is probably some of the actives left if you are so inclined to eat them. As long as it’s black from freezing and you treat like any other food that is thawed you should get a lil something. I wouldn’t suggest letting them sit out and dry like you can with fresh or live mushrooms. Bacteria and other fungi will see that black mess as a meal very quick.

Thank you guys!!! The smell is still ok, they smell like normal mushrooms but they got blacker a little bit. I'm not sure if i will try them but I will let you guys know what I did. btw. they should be from an "aztec god spore syringe".
