Title: Puff Balls
Post by: Raquettedacker on Sep 27, 2021, 01:32 PM
Found this nice one on Saturday and when I reached down to pick it I couldn’t believe what was on the top. Than noticed what was on the side..
 The top had a perfect , what I think is, a coyote paw 🐾 print.
 Not sure about the scratches on the side…

That would be really cool to preserve. Wonder if you can do that?

Yup saw two Tuesday afternoon. They needed a little time. Maybe the recent rain has the shrooms waking up.

That’s got to be a 5 lbr’. Eat all that and you’ll be a 250 lbr’.
Nice!

Right Bob.

That doesn’t look like a “puff” ball.

I went mushrooming with a buddy this evening,

We found a few boletes and a bowling ball-sized puffball.

I cooked them both and sampled some of the puffball (for the first time) and found it had a surprisingly delicate flavor.

Had a friend share half of a huge puffball with the wife and I. We cut 1 1/2" slices and used it for a base for personal pan pizzas. Had some homemade sauce from our tomatoes, along with venison meatballs. Added on some finely sliced onion, banana peppers, mozzarella and parm. Was outstanding!
