Fiddleheads


Fiddlehead, a little late for picking since it is unfurling

Gone are the days when human society relies on hunting and gathering for food…but if you ever find yourself in Northern Maine where Ostrich Ferns grow among human civilization, on the roadside, uninhabited woodland, and streams, you are in for a real treat. The time to pick them is the few weeks in early spring when the blossoming Ostrich Ferns
 ( fiddleheads) have not started to unfold. They are the harbinger of spring and are delicacies in Maine. Click onto this link http://umaine.edu/publications/4198e/to find more information on fiddleheads… if you cannot forage for fiddleheads, there are a lot of companies that sell them.    Enjoy this Spring treat.
