Fiddlehead Fern

Definition: Fiddlehead Fern

Fiddlehead Fern
Also known as the ostrich fern, this Spring vegetable, when coiled, resembles the head of a fiddle. It's dark green in color and about two inches wide in diameter. A good source of vitamins A and C, these ferns are best consumed cooked; in their raw state, they are too bitter. The flavor is somewhere between an artichoke, asparagus, and green bean.

Fiddlehead ferns are in season from April to July and should be kept wrapped in plastic in the fridge.
