Magic mushrooms are a viable ingredient for a variety of recipes. And now that neuroscientists have recognized their effects, you can safely use them in your kitchen. If you want to improve your kitchen skills and make food with magic mushrooms, you are in the right place.
Before we begin, be sure to buy psychedelic mushrooms from a reputable vendor, to be on the safe side.
Here are a few tips to help you cook with magic mushrooms and excel at it.
A Few Precautions You Should Know About
Starting your journey as a psilocybin chef can be quite challenging, especially if you have no experience with brewing magic mushrooms. Here are the few precautions you should know before you put on your apron.
What Is The Right Dosage?
If you have previous experience with consuming magic mushrooms, you can easily transfer your knowledge and use it for cooking. When it comes to the dose, there is no rule of thumb here. You probably already know what is the perfect dose for you.
Use the same dose of magic mushrooms in your recipes. If you are doing it for the first time in your life, you can make your usual dosage a target dose. Start small and work your way to your standard dose to see how your body reacts.
Consider the fact that cooking involves mixing up various ingredients to achieve that desired texture and taste. If you have never tried food based on magic mushrooms, you don’t know what effects it will have on you. Mix it up with something hard to digest, and you may experience nausea. Add the trip induced by magic mushrooms, and you will most likely regret everything.
It is best to start cooking simple meals, with as few ingredients as possible. The goal is to prepare something easy to digest while enabling the shrooms to do their work. There are a few tricks to help you prevent nausea. Add mint, lemon, or ginger to your recipe, and you will most likely work your way around it.
Heat and Potency Degradation
Heat, and its effects on psilocybin, is a topic that dates back to the first use cases of magic mushrooms. Don’t let this discourage you from cooking with magic mushrooms, even though you are about to bake your food.
After all, people have been using magic mushrooms in tea. Even though boiling water exposes them to high temperatures, the shrooms still could induce the trip effect.
Start With Simple Snacks & Meals
While there are plenty of ways to scramble in magic mushrooms in everyday recipes, consider starting simple. It will provide you with experience and help you discover fresh ways to introduce magic mushrooms to old recipes.
Gummy Bears Are Easy
Gummy bears are an excellent choice for novel chefs who want to try magic mushroom recipes. Gummy bears are fun to make, and they are delicious as well. You can make them with gelatin or with fruit juice.
Both versions are easy to make. The fruit juice version might be better because you can add lemon and honey to make a delicious treat and prevent potential nausea. Don’t forget to get some gummy bear molds.
Smoothies and Magic Mushrooms
Smoothies are next on the menu. You can add magic mushrooms to your healthy mix to tune up the experience. You need not be an experienced chef to do it. The best shrooms for this recipe are ground-dried ones.
Smoothies are best if you want to get effects as fast as possible, altogether avoiding the heavy feeling in your stomach. Any fruit will do. You can use berries, or any frozen fruit, orange juice, and some yogurt. If you have a sensitive stomach, add banana to calm it and enjoy the ride.
Chocolate is a powerful aphrodisiac. Mixing it up with magic mushrooms can induce powerful effects. Some people even argue that cacao in chocolate enhances the effects of magic shrooms. To make things easy, you can use any milk chocolate.
Melt chocolate in a microwave, grind dry magic mushrooms, mix it up, and put it in a mold. Refrigerate until its solid and enjoy the magic delicacy.
As you can see, cooking with magic mushrooms is easy. All you have to do is pay attention to the dosage. Once you feel comfortable around magic mushrooms in your kitchen, feel free to try more complicated recipes such as magic mushroom risotto and magic mushroom jacket potato.
