Agaricus Newbie

Agaricus Newbie (1/5)

  1. The ones I've collected in the woods have been dried on top our furnace at max heat of 100f. I've noticed no color shift in these.
  2. Thanks, I checked the post and these don't seem as hairy as the ones shown at that link but the bottoms seem similar. The ones I have here do have lots of tiny pores. The seller's supplier said that the brown color was caused by oven drying. If the oven temp is high enough to brown the undersides would it be killing the medicinal properties as well?
  3. I'm a new member and I have been a lover of mushrooms of all types for many years. When I was a kid my favorite book was Welcome To The Mushroom Planet by Elanor Cameron. Happy to be among all you wild mushroom lovers. I recently purchased a pound of Turkey Tails on ebay. On receiving them I was surprised to find the undersides brown instead of white to beige. When I contacted the seller he replied that his supplier assures that they are real Turkeys and that they are brown on the bottom because they are dried in an oven. Also wondering if the grey color of some of them points to false Turkey Tail. I've just started collecting fresh ones myself in a nearby woods. Bought these thinking it would be good to have a secondary source over the cold and snowy months. It was a decent deal but I'm wondering if I should return these. Is this a Turkey Tale or not?
