Pasta with Fiddlehead Ferns


Another idea inspired by our friend Kimberley who does the amazing blog The Year in Food!

After seeing the enticing post linked to above, James got the bug to cook up something with fiddlehead ferns. After a few days of him hinting at it, I finally stopped at Whole Foods on the way home from a long day at work one night and asked the produce guy if they had “fiddleberry ferns.”

That’s the kind of thing I do after a long day.

Fiddlehead ferns are weird, curly, somewhat asparagus-like, edible (only when cooked) fern shoots that are apparently in season right now. I have to say, not the most delicious thing I’ve ever had, but certainly not the worst by any means! It’s always fun to try something new. -L
