Fiddlehead Ferns - My World



 
Fiddlehead Ferns - My World



fiddle head ferns in the spring
 
 
We have been picking three times this season - yesterday was the last trip.
 
These delicious treats of spring are only here for about a week.
 
Then they become unfurled and are beautiful ferns for the rest of the year.
 
Cleaning them is a big job - they must be rinsed until the water they are soaked in is clear.
 
After four soakings and rinsed under running water, they are ready to be cooked.
 
We spent the afternoon blanching and cooling them for the freezer.
 
They will taste oh-so-good this winter when we pull them out for a meal!

  1. I had no clue you could eat ferns. Can you describe what you do with them? What do you eat them with? The photo is a nice close up. Well done!

  2. Hey there KML,

    Wow, that is one crazy looking fern and it sounds like they can be a pain to clean up. Are they any good?
