1st week of May is fiddlehead season up here

Fiddleheads for dinner

What are fiddleheads? Fiddlehead greens are the unfurled fronds of a young fern which are harvested for food consumption.

The tiny green spirals, which are the premium wild forage vegetable of Spring, emerge around the first week of May in the lowland forests from the Great Lakes to the Maritimes of Canada. No other vegetable matches the exquisite form and delicious flavor of fresh Fiddleheads.

They have a mild taste similar to asparagus and artichokes, and are easy to cook.

At the cottage a few nights ago, M cooked us a delicious dinner of barbecued lake trout, steamed green beans and sauteed fiddleheads, served with a leafy green salad, and crusty bread.
