Fiddleheads Ferns grow on the edge of streams and river in shady spots. They are a coveted delicacy and fiddlehead patches are secretly guarded by foragers who strive to assure their supply year after year.
This year I was welcomed into the world of fiddleheading. Having never tasted let alone picked a fiddlehead before, I was in for an amazing springtime treat.
In this article I will talk about foraging for fiddleheads, how to identify the correct fern and then go on to ways to prepare fiddleheads. They are delicious but you do need to know how to properly cook them since improper cooking can cause you to feel quite ill.
