    I read a post the other day somewhere that someone was finding some fall fungi...I think it was Kat in the Hat.

    This is certainly the time and with all of the moisture, they should be lots of everything. The only ones I've collected recently were some chanterelles so I could show a guy what they looked like. Oh, and a few tree ears off the firewood.

    One would think something called a "fungus ball" would be poisonous wouldn't you? But I hear they are pretty tasty.

    I havent seen any in a long time. I didnt find very many morels this year either. I didnt go out as much, but theres usually more. If that equates to same productivity of the puffballs..I have no idea.

    Wow! those are huge. I've never heard about them before but I've seen them. How do you prepare them? Do you tend to find them in abundance or are they far and few between?

    bill everyone knows rc is the best.:wink:

    Larry, they usually grow in the company of others where i find them. we slice them 12in thick and remove the skin. dip in egg and then seasoned flower and fry in butter( you can just dip them in seasoned egg only) . i have baked them on a cookie sheet with seasoning on them too but the family prefers fried. search them on the net for identification and recipes before harvesting.

    I usually add puffballs to various dishes--stews, soups, etc. I've tried to get away from frying mushrooms--there are a lot of different ways to use them. Don't get me wrong, I won't turn up my nose at a plate of fried ones, I ate them fried for decades. Lay a mess of fish on aluminum foil and cover them with mushrooms & onions, wrap up & put on the grill. Can't be beat!:wink:

    The responsibility that liberty brings. Something to think about.

    I'm a democrat. I still don't know what I'm gonna do. I know I'm NOT gonna base my decision JUST on what has gone on for the past 8 years.

    Do I vote for the MAN? Yeah, probably so.....that's what everyone in my family always has said. Party lines? What are those? Family and religion maybe. Now you KNOW party had nothin' to do with it :wink:!

    Didn't vote for Bush, and still glad I didn't. I must admit, I admire McCain. NOT because he's a war hero.

    And again, I must admit, I LIKE Obama. He has a weird name, YES. I think my great-grandaddy (just one of 'em) has a weird name, Adolphus.

    How much is based on what we're provided through the media? I know as far as I'm concerned it DOES influence you. Even e-mail does if you let it.

    Jim (ThaWstSide?), I love mushrooms, and have only recently learned to love (well, sorta) tomatoes.

    I DO like Dr.Pepper, but RC Cola was the only soft drink my grandma would let us have with breakfast.
