Fiddlehead Ferns

Fresh fiddleheads, those luscious furled fern fronds, are only available here in the spring.  I love them. 

Our Whole Foods has them.  These were grown locally - in Massachusetts.

Scoop them up and bring them home.

Rinse and rinse, then rinse again.  If not, sometimes not nice surprises are to be found in the furls - when it is too late and in your mouth.

Cut off the ends.

Lightly saute in good olive oil with just a hint of garlic.

Green heaven on a plate!
