Most edible mushrooms are small? No! There are so many big beautiful, delicious mushrooms growing all around the world!! This termite mushroom is big though! And beautiful

That’s amazing! I would love to taste that mushroom.

We have eaten this mushroom many times in Namibia. Absolutely wonderful fried in butter with a little salt and pepper. Delicious.
