mushroom id ?


Can anyone tell me what kind of mushroom this is? It's about the size of a softball.







Thanks, mike

Yep, looks like a puffball. It should be solid white in the middle....no gills....if it's a puffball. Just a reminder, though, with wild mushrooms make sure you can positively id it before you eat it.

Puffballs are great. Deep fried, puffball parm, lots of recipes!

Also, Break them open when you find them....if there is any brown inside, let them lay right were you found them....they are not even worth taking home for they are already starting to dry up and get ready to do as thier name says...."Puff" when something steps on them!
