Edible Puffballs?
    #11193365 - 10/06/09 02:21 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

If anyone can help me identify these, i would much appreciate it. I know i have seen them somewhere (the white puffballs) and it seems it was in a gourmet mushroom book.  They are white with maybe some greyish tint.  They have white powder like stuff that comes off, and when cut in half they are solid white like bread. The older specimens turned green and eventualy brown, towards rotting.  The one with the black gills was growing near the puffballs in a field.  It was by itself and has a white fleshy cap, short stalky white stem. and dark brown/black gills. Im thinking some kind of agaricus, possibly edible idk.  And im almost 100% on those Gymnopilus Spectabilis, been finding alot of them.
Heres the link to my photo gallery, these photos are not th best quality, but that wasnt my #1 priority when posting these, seeing as im not selling them. http://www.truepeace.printroom.com/ViewGalleryPhoto.asp?userid=TruePeace&gallery_id=1601779&tcount=6&scount=1&sku=125 Thanks for help.

Lycoperdon perlatum, and yes they are edible.

I am not a TI though, so you should wait before eating them.

yea, thats what i was thinking either
Lycoperdon perlatum or  lycoperdaceae pyriforme
Waiting on a trusted before consuming these though, and i would still love to know what kind of agaricus that is, or if it even rly is one.

Yup. those are pearl puffballs (lycoperdon perlatum). Only edible when solid white, and pretty bland. If you cook them in a sauce like tofu they'll taste a lot like... well, tofu, minus the beany flavour. They're also good breaded and deep fried (isn't everything?).


--------------------
I advise any noob looking to identify mushrooms to fill out the ID form and provide clear photographs. Knowledge is a privilege and deserves respect. Let's give due props to the experts!
