I would taste a raw one and if it didn't have any off flavor I would use them. I am not opposed to using old veggies.

As long as they are not slimy, I'd use them!

For any shroom to be edible Raw it should have a dry soft leather texture with no sheen. If You are going to cook with it Personally i wouldn't use it beyond glazing over"start of decomp".. but at that point it usually has a fishy smell. I've been trying to stay away from fishy smelling things because i've found it always means trouble for me.. :)
