You don't need me lol spot on. I'm so glad somebody is using that site he explains things so well in his videos. I don't find them around me, remember seeing them when I was a kid and watching them melt away day by day dripping ink.

Been away for a few days and came back to these beauties in the garden. The big ones are about 6" across and the little ones like golf balls.

Seeing as this thread is mushroom ID and some people are let’s say curious this time of year this is a very sensible informative video.

Walshie. Them puff balls when I first had them, were cooked by our local landlord, first in oil and then with a helping of Scottish malt. He had cut them like slabs of beef and, frankly, were fantastic. Hope you enjoy. And by the way, sorry for my lack of communication over the last couple of years. I’m missing quite a few of our contacts. Jok.

I have put some of these up before but a few of you lads seem getting interested in foraging for mushrooms. So here is a very safe one the Hedgehog Mushroom it does not have gills but underside of the caps is covered in little spikes. I just brush them off before cooking. We seem to find more in Spruce wood right in under the brash (old cut branches). Because they have spikes and not gills nothing you can muddle it with (Except may be I've been told a brown one that can be found in Scotland I believe). They are White or Creamy and sometimes a light Terracotta and the flesh is white also a miss shaped and fusing together. Just starting down here had a first picking yesterday.

Here are some Chanterelles I find they vary in colour the one we find in hedges and on banks covered in bushes by the river are a buff yellow like the ones you see on sale. Then a brighter one up in the woods on the side of the moors. The one thing is they must cut white they also do not have true gills more like wrinkles. There is a false Chanterelle that I find from time to time usually growing on old wood ant mounds but it does not cut white and it has proper gills.

The duller creamy one.
