  • Duckegg,
    Thanks! I miss Fiddleheads sooooo much. Living in South Carolina and not a Fiddlehead to be found. The ferns in my shade garden are two feet high in the middle of the winter....or so it seems. Sauted with a bit of butter....salt and pepper....can't ask for anything better.....well, maybe another sweep this weekend of the Yankees! But, alas........2 out of three is still mighty fine.

    <p />Duckegg,

    fishlessman,
    I picked them right out of my own backyard. Most convienient. We like them a lot but I guess they are not for everybody. If not cooked properly they can give you a great opportunity to catch up on your reading.[p]I have seen them in supermarkets in central in small expensive packages.

    duckegg,
    could you get me a closup pic of them in the ground, i want to find the right ones and it would be good to know what to look for. i get them at an agway for a couple bucks a pound, when they start popping up, 3 weeks and the seasons over til next year. planted some last year and havent seen any start to come up yet, they may not like the clay in my dirt. i would like to see what they look like before cleaning

    stike,
    shaws has them? not in the meat or beer section, you family guys shop in different areas of the store, ill have to go look. theres some isles ive never been in, i do pass thru that isle on the way to the cheese, maybe i should stop and look around

    fishlessman,
    That potfull is uncleaned just as they were cut, cleaning them up is a pain, soak and rinse, soak and rinse. They should be blanched before cooking. It's a lot of work but they are tasty little dudes. I am told they freeze well. Will send pic. The clay shouldn't bother them too much. Mine grow 5-6ft. high in the same type of dirt.

  • fishlessman,
    I've bought them at the Market Basket in Andover many years in the past. None there this weekend though.[p]Paul
