Fiddleheads are a fern that are harvested as a vegetable. They are full of vitamin A and C as well as a good source of fibre and omega 3 fatty acids. They are a spring time vegetable that taste very similar to asparagus. I am steaming these but fiddleheads can also be used in soup, salad and pastas.
They are usually available fresh at the local markets or they can be found in the frozen food section in most grocery stores. You can also harvest your own. They grow along the river edge in some areas.

Thank you for this most informative post. I never knew, or even considered, that fiddleheads were edible. I'm certain they are not available in my area. Maybe a couple hours drive to a posh restaurant in Charlotte or Atlanta?
I have learned something, today. I will keep it in mind. If I ever have the chance to try steamed fiddleheads, i will do so.
