photoblog image Puffball

Puffball

A Puffball Mushroom. I am squeezing it in the bottom photo to release it's spores. They are edible when white but I have never tried one.

 

I must introduce you to a magnificent piece of music I have found. The Canadian singer, Elisapie is new to me.

Nice!

In Thailand we eat a kind of puffball mushroom when it is white...very tasty.
Mary MacADNski: I remember learning that all members of the family are edible.

I have eaten puffball before but it looks strange so close up in your photograph. I agree about the singer, a very good voice. I love French in singing.
Mary MacADNski: I love the chanteuse as well. I am sure you ate your puffball init's white form.

If you tread on these they release a black cloud of spores
Mary MacADNski: My favorite activity as a child and I'll tell you this one got a good stomping.
Not tried a puffball
Mary MacADNski: The whole of the family is edible I believe.

I have eaten Giant Puffball - but only once. It was like polystyrene
Mary MacADNski: Probably the smaller ones would be better. The wwhole family is edible.
Yes, we have the puffball here too - more than one variety I think.
Mary MacADNski: There are more than one variety but I am only familiar with this one.

I had to say that I would never risk eating any mushroom that I had picked. Some are poisonous even to touch. Your close-up dies not make them look very appetising.
Mary MacADNski: The whole of the family is edible I believe. They are eaten in their fresh, white stage not at this brown spore stage.
Don't think I'd try one of them to be honest.

Wonderful science photos!
And yes - it's a beautiful piece of music!
