mushroom soup/strange dreams
- Chowbabe Mar 2, 2001 03:59 PM
I recently made a wild mushroom soup, froze it, and ate the leftovers a week later. My husband claims that both times he ate it he had bizarre dreams on those nights. No, the soup was not made with "magic mushrooms"--just chanterelles, dried morels, shitaki, cremini, and portobello. But my husband claims that even these mushrooms can have a trace of halucinogenics. I think that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Any validity to his connecting the dreams to these shrooms? I slept through both nights as per usual.

I find that I'm just slightly sensitive to FRESH morels, batch by batch. Sometimes, nothing but delight; other times, weirdness, though more dyspepsia than hallucinations. I have pretty strange dreams whenever I dream, so I don't think I'd have connected any particular dream with the morels.
NOTHING weird with dried morels, however, which is what I'm freely assuming you used, Chowbabe, since morels aren't "in season" for a month or so.
