Blue Oyster mushrooms can also be dried for extended use and do not have to be rehydrated before using. Blue Oyster mushrooms pair well with herbs such as parsley, thyme, and sage, potatoes, aromatics including garlic, green onion, shallots, ginger, and lemongrass, leeks, asparagus, bok choy, bell pepper, miso, heavy cream, fish, and meats such a beef, poultry, and turkey.
The mushrooms will keep up to three days when stored loosely in a brown paper bag in the refrigerator. It is advisable to keep the mushrooms in larger clumps for better storage to keep them from drying out. Once cooked, Blue Oyster mushrooms will keep for 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator, or they can be frozen for up to three months. Blue Oyster mushrooms can also be dried and kept in a sealed container away from direct sunlight for extended use.

Last order I got was frozen when it was delivered. I know that's not your guys' fault. Lesson learned, refrain from ordering spores in the winter. Only one out of three syringes took, the blue oyster. Portobello and shiitakes have yet to show any signs of growth after almost a month. But like I said that's kind of out your guys control. Other than that I have been very satisfied with the spores I have gotten from you guys.
Thanks for the review! Sorry to hear about the freezing and lack of growth. Please keep in touch and i'll make sure you are taken care of!
I put this straight to an all in one bag, and it grew out fully ready to fruit within two weeks! After putting into fruiting, i got not just one, not even two, but three MASSIVE flushes of gorgeous mushrooms 😎
