I was gifted some fiddleheads last Saturday at the market, by a friend who stopped to say hello. She gave me some quick instructions too, since I had never eaten them before.
First you soak them in saltwater. Either let them sit overnight or rinse them really well to get the brown bits off.
Then sauté in butter and garlic.
I added a few extras: some zucchini and sausage!
They were pretty tasty, although one or two were bitter. Not sure why. I’d recommend trying them, though. It wasn’t as difficult or scary as I thought it would be, and now I can say I’ve eaten them and know how to prepare them! Give it a try, now, before the season is over. Thanks Susan!
