The fresh wild fiddlehead season is upon us and as always is short lived. The season usually only lasts for around 8-12 weeks. During this time you will find these tasty treats on the menus of North America’s best restaurants. We recommend cooking fiddleheads with some good quality white wine vinegar. You can also pickle them so that you can use them throughout the year. These wild greens are excellent when paired with almost any type of protein, or in a ragout served with fresh pasta. Fiddleheads are a versatile and delicious spring time item.
How to Store and Handle Wild Fiddleheads
- Wild fiddleheads typically last for 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
- We strongly recommend blanching fiddleheads and then sauteing.
- It is not uncommon to find the occasional bug on a wild foraged vegetable, simply wipe it off and know that it is still perfectly safe and delicious to eat.
