plenty of these tasty edible treats along the way, but no time to pick them, cook them... a pity!
What month did you walk the Norte to see these and how positive are you they are safe to eat? I love scavanging!

That was in october 2017, they are called Coprinus comatus (Shaggy mane)



you can only eat them very young and very fresh. Incidentally, the Nazi secret services would use their ink as a proof of authenticity in coded messages; if you look at the writing with a magnifying glass, you can see the tell-tale spores!

That wiki article is very interesting!
Thanks for your "quick" reply! 🙂
I have recently found three puffball mushrooms. I diced one, sauteed part of it in butter, and the other half I used in cream of mushroom soup. They store well in the refrigerator. They soak up a lot of oil which is a negative, along with their soft spongy texture.
 
haha! my reply was that quick because this is the first time I saw the message!. We have puff balls here in Southern Spain, to me, they are tasteless, never pick them. Over here, we call them "peos de lobo", that is, "wolf farts". Mushroom names can be peculiar a times, indeed.
 
Yes, puffballs do leave something to be desired.
I am still hoping to find morel mushrooms one day. They are difficult to find and those who hunt them never share the locations with anyone else because they are the most delicious, sought after ones.
