Ben and I start drooling over the idea of fiddleheads for dinner right about this time of year. And it's time, once again, to head to the farmers' market and buy up everything I can find. If you live in this area and you know of a place selling them, please, please, please share the info! I'll check out the Troy Farmers' Market tomorrow morning, but I know there must be plenty of other markets around here where you can get them.
And, if you have a great fiddlehead recipe you'd like to share, I'm all ears. I blanch mine in a pot of boiling water for a quick minute and then saute them in a pan with sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, red pepper flakes and garlic. Heaven, I tell you.
Oh, and please, if you find some and you're not familiar with these delicious little gems, please don't eat them raw. You'll be sorry.
Edit: We found them! One person was selling them from a huge tub for $4.50 / 1/2 pound, so we bought two pounds. I hope she'll be back next week because we'll need much more than that!
