    Default Fiddleheads

    Blanched, bagged and froze 10 lbs of fiddleheads... Hand harvested in
    northern the wilds of northern Saskatchewan.

    They're only available fresh for a short time, so I saved some for
    dinner tonight and have a jar marinading in the fridge.

    Yum...

    Now that's something I've never tried. We have wild fern growing in the
    area but am not sure which variety it is. How do they taste and do they
    last very long frozen?

    Similar to asparagus, but they have their own unique flavour and
    texture. They will last a year in the freezer in zipper bags, longer if
    they were vacuum sealed, I'm sure.

    Up here, fiddleheads are from the Ostrich Fern, Matteuccia
    struthiopteris. According to Wikipedia there are several varieties that
    can be used. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiddlehead_fern
