I have read personal reports of adding mushrooms to honey to effect preservation.
To save the magic, all one needs to do is immerse those morsels in raw honey and stash them in a cool, shady place, and let osmosis do its thing. The honey will first turn amber, then a deep blue-black color indicating that the honey has become psychoactive. At this point it is time to strain out the mushrooms from the honey.
It also asserts that this is an ancient practice.
The answer comes to us born on the w7inds (sic) of time. Kosmic, karmic trade winds from an ancient Mayan past.
I have never seen evidence that I would consider 'anthropological' or 'archeological', to document the ancient use of honey to preserve mushrooms.
Can anyone provide sources?
