Most who have tried Fiddlehead Ferns, an old-world culinary delicacy, will never forget the experience. With a delicate, earthy taste not unlike asparagus, but with more depth when picked freshly, Fiddlehead Ferns are a taste to remember. When selected at just the right time, before they have grown too large and gotten tough, Fiddleheads should be served blanched or raw in salads, or may be cooked minimally with just a bit of butter and salt, to be served alongside gamefowl. Fiddleheads are the small, tightly-curled concentric rings on a newly sprouting fern frond, before it has been allowed to mature. Natives to many U.S. regions prize 'Fiddleheads' as a culinary delicacy, a tradition which first began in Western Europe. Though many different fern species produce fiddleheads, only those of a few specific varieties which are both safe and delicious to eat. The best among them are Ostrich Ferns, which we can deliver quickly and safely to your location at the peak of flavor.
