Basic Boiled Fiddleheads

Recipes don't get any simpler than this one, yet many "hard core" Fiddlehead enthusiasts insist that this, or a simple sauté, is the only way to eat this woodland delicacy.

Ingredients

  • 1-pound Fiddleheads ferns, each about 1 to 1 ½ inches in diameter

Method

  • 1.

    Trim the base of your ferns, leaving only a tiny tail beyond the circumference of each Fiddlehead. Rub off any remaining furry brown covering. Rinse under running water. Drop ferns into a large pot of boiling salted water. Boil for about 5 minutes or until tender. If undercooked, you will miss the full, rich flavor. Drain well and serve piping hot with melted butter.
