I agree, puffballs don't do it for me either. There's plenty of other 'shrooms out there that are much tastier
I collect and dry a lot of black trumpets which are a kind of chanterelle. Despite their appearance they have a very delicate flavor.
I also like to collect and freeze honey mushrooms which can be extremely plentiful in recent logged out wood lots.
There's a couple of trees that I know of that are good for some oysters every year and of coarse I'm always on the look-out for the King Bolete which as far as I'm concerned is the finest tasting wild mushroom there is.
