I recently read in a identification_/cook_book that the STERILE BASE of
these species, when cooked seperately from the puffballs, taste
remarkably like M*O*R*E*L*S.
Lycoperdon pyriforma (Pear-shaped Puffball)
Lycoperdon perlatum (Common Puffball; Gemmed Puffball)
Since these species appear to be easier to artifically fruit than
Morchella, this presents an interesting prospect.
Have you noticed this taste-feature?
Are you aware on anyone researching the cultivation of these species?
