The puffball has landed

My friends just found a mushroom three times the size of my head. How cool is this? It’s a giant puffball mushroom and they found it in a stone circle in Somerset.

Puffballs appear overnight and can grow to 1.5 metres in diameter.¬†They’re edible when young. When they mature they become dangerous to eat and contain several trillion spores. It’s at this point they become fun to kick – although make sure you don’t breathe in any of the spores.

We cooked this one up with butter, salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar. Tasted just like an omelette. Yum.
