Fiddlehead ferns are those magical looking green coils you’ve probably seen at the grocery store or your local farmer’s market. If you haven’t tried them already, I suggest you run out to get some as soon as you decide how you’re going to use them. They’re in season, they’re beautiful and they’re packed with fiber and vitamins. Fiddlehead ferns are also beyond delicious and a whimsical addition to any plate.
