How to Choose and Buy Fiddlehead Ferns Vegetable
Selection of Fiddlehead Ferns:
Try to find the freshest fiddleheads
possible. Look for the brightest green, most succulent (as opposed to
old or dried out) ferns available. Fiddleheads less than 3 inches long
will be the tenderest. They are often covered with a scaly, papery husk
that usually rubs right off. Sometimes this husk will be missing,
having fallen off during sorting and packaging. Avoid any fiddleheads
that are yellowed, brown, or dry looking. And definitely do not buy any
that are not tightly coiled. Once the ferns begin to unroll they become
tough, hairy and unappetizing, the truth of the matter, in my
estimation, is that fiddleheads are so expensive that they should be
avoided all together if they are not in excellent condition.
