What to do with Fiddle Heads


It’s such a delicacy here in Maine. We wait for those tasty little fern sprouts to arrive in the spring. At my house, my Polish husband thinks fiddle heads are like eating grass, so I get to eat all of them. I also blanch a few batches and then freeze them so I can enjoy them in the winter. I hide my stash from my brother.spring fernsFiddle heads are also delicious cooked in water, drained and served with salt, pepper and melted butter.
