By Raymonde G. from North Bay, OntarioEditor's Note: "Fiddlehead ferns refers to the unfurled fronds of a young fern harvested for food consumption... In rural areas, fiddleheads are harvested by individuals in early spring. When picking fiddleheads, three tops per plant is the recommended harvest. Each plant produces seven tops that turn into fronds; over-picking will kill the plant." per Wikipedia
