Another reader took the June Challenge! Our wonderful commenter tofupuppy tried fiddlehead ferns! She says,
I’ve been eating fiddleheads this month! I read an article about them long, long ago and have been curious. I saw them at Rainbow Grocery recently and, despite the price (like $15/lb!), thought I’d give them a try. I’ve been preparing them by blanching in salted water and then sauteing in olive oil. Last night I made a fiddlehead, “chicken chunk,” garlic, and nooch corkscrew pasta. They taste a little like a cross between asparagus and artichoke. Really yum!
Congratulations, tofupuppy! Fiddleheads are a wonderful spring food, I love their funny shapes. I’ve got total dinner-envy now.
