So limited in time. So delicious!! I have cooked them before but never had them so fresh. If we are able to leave the city early on Fridays and have time to go to this grocer in Poughkeepsie, we are set for the following week. This grocer has amazing local vegetables, very reasonably priced, as well as great fish and meats. They had fiddlehead ferns AND baby artichokes that were just beautiful!!!
So I made the fiddleheads on Friday night. Blanched them in boiling water for a minute and then sauteed them in ½ tbs. butter for a bit until some browned edges started showing up. A little salt and pepper and that’s all you need!
Talk about DELICIOUS!!!! Really yummy – my husband was still talking about them tonight!
My advice, try to find these babies NOW. They are only around for 1-2 weeks.
Please let me know how you make out with them.
