This enormous puffball mushroom was calling to me. I had never eaten a wild shroom before but if there is a safe one to id, this is it!!



Look how it takes up the entire sink!  I did not wash, you mustn't of course, but it was just there so I could chop off the tiny area of root.



The outer skin is tough, so slice it all off. Plus, IT WILL GIVE YOU SERIOUS GASTROINTESTINAL ISSUES OF YOU EAT IT.



cute one slice after removing the outer smaller 'heel' as you would a loaf of bread.




Marinating 2T of sherry, 2T of tamari, 2T of balsamic vinegar for 20 minutes, turning over halfway thru.



Fry in olive oil for 5 minutes on medium, I had to adjust frequently so it would not stick but that is due to the fact that I have all lousy cookware. Add 1T chopped garlic, 3T chopped fresh basil, and flip the whole thing so that your added stuff is now on the bottom, turn heat down one notch and continue to fry for another 3 minutes. Turn heat off, put loose lid on the whole thing and let sit for 5 minutes.




I sprinkled turmeric all over and put the slice on a generous bed of alfalfa sprouts.

It was truly yummy and very filling!

thanks for looking!!

Wow - initially I thought it was either a styrofoam ball you were decorating or a big ball of dough - that is a nice sized puff.  I recently got half of one from a neighbour and it was delicious.  Yours is big and beautiful!

Although I have never tried one I love mushrooms so I am sure I would love it. What did it taste like? Is it as 'airy' as it looks or when it's cooked down does it get 'slimy' (but in a good way lol)?

Ooh, I want to eat that!
I think it is so funny that in just a little while longer that would have been a hollow sphere full of spores. WEIRD! Wonderfully weird.

Mmmmm.... I'm so jealous! Puffballs were my father's favourite wild mushroom, and he seemed to have a gift for finding huge ones that nobody else saw. I've never heard about the need to peel off the skin - I don't think Dad ever did that and didn't seem to suffer any consequences of it.

Some years ago, my partner Ian and I were driving somewhere along a country road and out of the corner of my eye I spotted something big and white in the adjoining field. I looked closer and yes, it was a HUGE puffball, the size of a soccer ball. I slammed on the brakes and was out of the car and clambering across the ditch and over the fence before Ian could even get out of the car and call "What's wrong? What's happening?" I ran up to the giant fungus, already tasting how great it would be, and found to my bitter disappointment that it was only... a soccer ball. I'm still kind of bitter about how I badly I was tricked that day. I seem to lack my dad's fungus-finding divvy.
