Fiddleheads are a sure sign of Spring. The most common of wild edibles people have been eating them since the middle ages. Fiddleheads were an important part of the diet of our indigenous people. The unfurled frond of the ostrich fern, the fiddlehead resembles the curled ornamentation (called a scroll) on the end of a stringed instrument, such as a violin or fiddle. Fiddleheads have antioxidant activity, are a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and are high in iron and fiber and have a taste similar to asparagus. Join Chef Scott and our sustainable forager extraordinaire Grant for a morning in the woods searching for these delicious ferns. We will show you how to identify, how to harvest, and how to clean your fiddleheads. Once back at base camp Chef Scott will serve us up a magnificent lunch and give a cooking demonstration on the proper way to prepare fiddleheads. As with all our edible escapades, you will leave with a full belly, new found friends
