Do you guys see these? They seem numerous this year.
i see them frequently in cow pastures or grassy areas. If you get them when they are really firm and new above the ground the they are delicious to eat. Meat should be solid white and very firm
If there is a yellow ( or brownish orange) part in the meat mushroom I will not eat them. Slice thin like a ritz cracker. cut in to pieces about the size of the ritz cracker or jar lids. Brown in butter. Salt and pepper. Good eating.
As always, Be very careful to properly ID the balls as puff ball mushrooms as misidentified mushrooms can poison you if eat the wrong ones.
Nice find, nice video as always. I found a tiny bolete Friday and will be checking it again this morning. Yesterday while weeding, I found many of one of my favorites to photograph, Bird's Nest. Chiggers discovered me in the process, so I could not obtain afternoon nor night shots. I mixed up some Seven at dusk and went to town with all, spraying everything in sight except for actual flower blooms in hopes of managing some better shots throughout today.
I need to stumble upon a few of these!
One good thing about them is that they are easy to spot!
I’m finding some checking cows this morning they are nice firm and white but I have Beatles in them. Can you cut around the beetle holes or should you just totally stay away from them?
In my opinion if it looks otherwise ok it would be like an apple or tater, cut around em and go on.
One of my favorite shrooms to eat and as a kid one of my favorite things to bean my buddies in the head with.
Saw a big one from the road this week but didn’t pick it.
Not sure if this is just a real weird puffball but even looking at pics of Ky mushrooms I wasn’t even sure. Anyway, I walked up on this joker on a neighborhood trail the other day. The pic doesn’t do it justice. It was at least 10 inches tall and almost as wide.
I dont have a problem washing the beatles away if the shrooms are pretty fresh, but look for clear (almost invisible) larvae. On any shroom with bugs, I clean and slice them, put them in bags and into the fridge, then wash off them off a gain a couple hours later to rid them of any larvae carcasses. Usually i can find enough bug free this isnt really necessary but sometimes I get desperate.
Regardless always cook mushrooms thoroughly to prevent bacterial food poisoning. The longer larvae live on a shroom the more larvae poo there is on/in it.
Soaking them in saltwater a few minutes will help get any bugs out. I even find them in store bought mushrooms sometimes after doing that.
Real weird puffball....might be some of it edible if you whittle on it for a while
If you are interested in puffball mushrooms , I Also suggest you look at the excellent post pictures Carnivore just put together in the Puff ball topic on the Community Forum
Ill bring the pics over. You can get a an idea of the slices that are no good, good, and a few have some good parts that can be cut out.
