Raw Fiddlehead Fern Macro


Raw Fiddlehead Fern


a macro of raw fiddlehead ferns cleaned for cooking


These Fiddlehead Ferns were picked last spring.

They are an edible delicacy that grow wild in our part of the country.

They are becoming increasingly difficult to find, and it is important to not pick all so the plant will continue to grow and produce the next year.

It is almost time to go check on our spot in the woods to see how they are coming.

  7. Hi Arty - not all ferns, just a certain few - some of them contain toxins and you wouldn't want to eat those ones!

  10. Bobbie - I agree, they are the most beautiful green, but once they are cooked, they are an olive green color and not as pretty.
