Looks like Lycoperdon pyriforme which is a small puff ball that typically grows on logs.
Had a bunch growing in the wood pile. Very good eating
Thought I would post a pic of the bottom (gills) of an oyster mushroom to help in identifying these.
I've never tried any of the puff balls. How did you cook them?
Should have specified... found a bunch of oysters. Never tried the puff balls.
I have ate several of the larger puff balls. Find one about the size of a small Mellon. Make sure it's fresh not turning brown. Peel it like an orange and cut into a size you like. I cut mine about 1/4 inch thick or thinner and the size of a piece of bread. I have seen and done this myself, cube in 1 inch squares and stir fry. But I normally roll in buttermilk and flour and fry. Use whatever seasoning you like. They freeze good also
Picked a little over 4 lbs today off of the same stumps that produced last year on 1/4/17.
I accidentally smushed a bunch in my wood pile before i realized they were there. Im jealous of your haul
Thought I would share my favorite cream of oyster mushroom soup recipe in case anyone finds a mess. We do add some garlic salt and freshly cracked black pepper to this recipe and use onion instead of leeks. Also, you will probably only need to use 4-5 oz of flour.
I prefer mine to be a bit more psychodelic.
That’s fantastic! I will have to make sure to pay a bit more attention when I spot some wild mushrooms. Looks like good eating!
