Alien Marshmallows


Found these things buried about 1/2" in the ground in my landscape. They look like schrooms but they were buried. Anyone care to edumacate me?

Re: Alien Marshmallows


If it's a fungi it could be a truffle although there are probably lots of inedible underground fungi. Was it near a tree root system?

Nope it's not crap. They are just like mushrooms but grew underground. They do have a little root tail on them. Didn't know cat crap had roots.

I've always looked at the world through rose colored glasses as well. I'm one with nature.

Fry them up with some butter, and they taste somewhere between a mushroom and a piece of cardboard, fried in butter. Did it a few times back in Boy Scouts.

Mike, what you have there are a delicacy, genuine Anaheim lawn truffles. Fry them up with some butter, and they'll taste just like a puffball that was dug out of a lawn fertilized by a large dog, fried in butter.
