SEPTEBER 13, 2032
“ALAN, LOOK WHAT I FOUND.”
“ GIANT PUFF BALL…WHERE WAS IT?
“IN THE DITCH…DO YOU THINK IT ’S EDIBLE?”
WE ATE AFEW SKICES IF THIS PUFF BALL
Puff ball mushrooms are very strange. They appear suddenly almost anywhere and
grow immense in short time. And they are edilble but be careful. They are only
edible when very young,,,,when all white. Totally white inside and spongy.
OLD PUFF BALLS LOOK LIKE UGLY VOMIT
No one in their right mind would eve eat an old puffball because they look sick…ugly
internal contents become sickly green … the colour of fresh vomit. Even a
complete fool would not touch a mature puffball. If it is kicked like football
a cloud of spores burst forth. Old puff balls are ghastly.
But young puff balls are as pretty as fresh bread. And look like fresh bread.
They can be sliced like fresh bread using a good sharp bread knife. Use a gentle saw like action.
Peel the thin rubber like crust and the puff ball is ready for the frying pan..
Easiest way to eat a puff ball is to put some butter in the frying pan, then add the slices
of the puff ball. Sprinkle with salt nd pepper. Garlic salt is best…gives best flavour.
Fry until both sides are golden brown or even darker brown.
Then eat the slices like you would French Toast or pan cakes.
What do they taste like? Rather bland. Very bland.
Today Marjorie’s puff ball tased like garlic salt.
Note: Mushroom hunting is tricky.. Some mushrooms are good. Some are bad…very bad.
Fresh puff balls are really good. Old puff balls are disgusting. It’s easy to tell the difference.
