I made some chocolates with mushrooms mixed in, in june. I did one as a test when i made them, gave the rest away, but i kept one to see if there was a potency loss over long term. Just ate it up yesterday this is oct so 4 months old. They where still pretty good, there might have been a bit of potency loss but not alot. Kept them in the freezer the whole time.

 

Just thought i would share, didn't find any info on it when i was looking for it, sorry if its common knowledge here.

 

Ive had some pretty crappy mushroom chocolates at festivals always assumed it was because of potency loss from the chocolate, guess not!

nice to know, thank you for sharing. Did you powder or chunk the mush up? i'm still a tea kinda guy, but love chocolate. I just don't like eating the solids anymore, too much on the ol gut.

If you do combine your mushrooms with chocolate, I would assume that chilled in the refrigrator would be A-OK, but maybe totally chilled in the freezer would be even more OK for the long-term.

This might possibly have been due to the potency of the source mushrooms, or the storage conditions of the good mushrooms in chocolate. Who knows?

 

If you know it's potent and you store it cool or colder you might be OK for the long-haul. I only have some friends I know to consult as to long-term storage potency. Your mileage may vary.

I have found that mushrooms do not really lose potency even over 4-5 yrs and left in very airy and barely closed containers. I would bet that they would store long term in chocolate almost as well as honey. A few months back I ate some very old mushroom powder from the bottom of a apothecary jar with a rather loose fitting lid that had been stuck in a box an stored away all that time. I was fuckin amazed when I did a few grams of it and I mean only like 2-3 grams at most. I have not found them to lose much potency over time but instead they hit you hard and a little different than freshly dried ones. Dunno what makes the difference but they don't seem to lose anything from what I have seen.

indeed! dust that stuff!

 

cat edit: powdering them should make them easier to digest and harder hitting, correct?!
