I have been watching a quiet, rarley visited area near me where puffballs grow in profusion every year waiting for them to appear, however for the last couple of weeks due to being very busy I have not had the time to go and check up on them...... untill yesterday.
where lo and behold over a hundred had appeared! unfortunately I had missed most of them and they had almost all gone or were starting to go to spore
I did however find three large ones that were still good to eat, which is more than enough. I dropped one in at my parents house, and took the other two home.
fried up with some salt, pepper, and a little chicken stock they were absolutely delicious and extremely filling!
