GONE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT
Like the Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster, you'd be forgiven for thinking these were just a myth. Fiddleheads are the young shoots of the Ostrich fern, and they can be found in the wild for only a scant few weeks each spring. But their unique and evocative flavour makes the effort oh-so worth it.
They're a challenge well-suited to the expert foragers of Forbes Wild Foods, who are dedicated to collecting and preserving the finest wild foods. Preserved in a light lemon marinade, they can be used in your favourite recipes, cooked on their own (slathered in butter!), or even eaten straight from the jar. Because while music may be the food of love, fiddleheads are a food we love to eat.
