Mushroom identification.

I have identified this as an edible puffball found in garden. (Scotland)
I would like to eat them, anyone got any knowledge on mushrooms to confirm they are edible.

If in doubt...…...bin them. Don't tempt fate or advice from a forum J.
I'm a hunter gatherer when it come to mushrooms, straight off the shelf in Sainsbury's. Dirt cheap.

Re: Mushroom identification.

No puffballs are dangerous Juco. Try it on the missus first.

Re: Mushroom identification.

Missus point blank refuses to eat them!

Googling appears to point to being edible:

Quote:
There is one good way to tell puffballs apart from its poisonous look-a-likes, you must cut the mushroom in half from top to bottom. The inside of edible puffball mushrooms should be pure white, like a marshmallow, or like fresh mozzarella balls, there should be no patterns, or marks or colors or anything other than pure white, and especially no signs of gills. If you follow this one rule you should be able to enjoy mushroom hunting for puffball mushrooms without worry.

Re: Mushroom identification.

They are edible, I have eaten them, there is also a giant puffball, one slice would fill a dinner plate, I have seen them but never found one myself. Afiyet Olsun.

Before eating I would suggest you also Google what the symptoms are if you eat the wrong ones, along with the treatment one may face thereafter.
There used to be a sign by the doors on Midland Red buses in Birmingham and itís always stuck with me.
It said, ďTake care, donít chance itĒ

Re: Mushroom identification.

Don't chance it: death or severe organ failure if you are wrong. As most mushrooms have hardly any taste - only what you cook them in - why bother?

Re: Mushroom identification.

I would really love to gather mushrooms from the wild. Our daughter even bought me a book on how to identify them. Far too chicken to try ! Prefer the fail safe option from the shops/market.

Re: Mushroom identification.

Don't know if this is the case in Turkey, and can't find out from Wales, but in France you can take your pickings to a pharmacy and they will identify them for you.
