    What's the best method for freezing puffballs? We seem to have a bumper crop here this year. I usually dry them for later use, but I'd like to try freezing some too. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Well, first, don't let the owner know that you took Puffballs (as well as Fluffy or any of the other cats). I normally put them in whole but sometimes you can hear them squeal.

    Sorry about that... just couldn't help myself. :)

    I don't recall the details but from what I've heard, you should cook them first and try to get all the air out of the bag before putting in the freezer.

    They're a type of mushroom (or are at least in the mushroom family).

    We used to get huge ones in the front yard.
    For those who don't get them, they look like big white balls in the the yard- from softball size to over the size of a basketball! Very tasty too!

    Of course they are!!!! :lolsmash::lolsmash:....

    I thought first of those round yellowish cheesy things kids love and wondered why anybody would want to!!

    I've never had the guts to try picking wild ones and never tried growing my own...hmmm why does the word Schrooms come to mind? :sssh:

    Interesting thought

    Which reminded me I need to learn more about sprouting alfalfa and radish sprouts... never tried it...

    LOL! Thanks, I needed a laugh this morning. Thanks for the info too. The puffballs are in the freezer and no cats were harmed in the process.

    Sounds like confusing 'puffballs' with 'hairballs'....... :D

    One's a potentially dangerous, rubbery wild growing invasive species.......

    and the other is a mushroom. :2thumb:
