Puffball mushrooms are an edible species of fungi (calvatia gigante). The fluffy texture and earthy flavor is great in eggs, soups, and quiche. Be careful if you try to harvest wild puffball mushrooms; they can be mistaken for young amanita mushrooms, which can be toxic or downright deadly. To identify: When cut in half, the fungus should be solid and pure eggshell white or light yellow. There should be no outline of a small mushroom inside.
