Wild Fiddlehead Ferns
  • Description
    Fiddlehead ferns, the coiled tip of young ostrich fern leaves, are a true springtime delicacy. With a chewy bite and a flavor similar to okra crossed with asparagus, fiddleheads are best lightly blanched and then sautéed with a little garlic and olive oil. Be sure to gently remove any brown husk remnants before cooking.
    They stay unfurled for just two weeks before continuing to mature into full-blown foliage – with a season lasting from late spring through mid-summer – so you should get these while you can!

    Please note: These fiddlehead ferns are wild and extremely delicate. There may be some browning to the tips; this is normal. To trim, simply cut off the unfurled stems, leaving the coiled tips.

    Heating Instructions

    SPECIALTY

    Storing Rhubarb
    Rhubarb should last for about 4 days in the refrigerator's crisper. Keep it tightly wrapped in plastic. If you want to store it long term, wash, cut into the desired length, and place in an airtight container. It will keep in the freezer for about 9 months.

    Storing Fennel
    Fennel will keep for about 5 days if you store it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Unless using fennel within a couple of days, trim off the stems and store them separately so they don't leach moisture from the bulb.

    Storing Chayote
    This squash should keep for up to 4 weeks when stored in a plastic bag in your refrigerator's vegetable drawer.

    Storing Tomatillo
    These fruits should keep for at least 2 weeks, and up to a month, when stored in a paper bag in your refrigerator's vegetable drawer. If you plan to use them within a couple of days, they will be fine on the countertop.

    Storing Okra
    To store okra, wrap it in a paper towel and tuck inside a paper bag, then place in the least cool section of the refrigerator. Try to use it soon after purchase, as okra is quite perishable. It should keep for 3 or 4 days.
