Eating Puffballs
    #1211743 - 01/12/03 12:36 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)


I work at a park in the summer...right off of lake Ontario. Around mid september, there is one very secluded area where there are literally thousands of puffballs. It's quite a sight to see...most of them range in size from that of a softball to big volleyball sized ones. Anyway, I'd like some input as to whether these are good to eat. I know they're safe, but are they worth picking and cooking?

The park is in Burlington, Ontario...and it looks more like an army of snowmen that were hit with a grenade :smile:

I know Dundas very well. I used to live in Flamborough...literally 2 minutes from Main St.

Just make sure they are not a poisonous species. There are a few species that will wreak havok on your gastrointestinal track if you eat them. If you are going to eat them, get them before they start producing spores.
