Fiddlehead? No...We Don't Mean The Musical Kind...(Drawing A Blank?)

Maine fiddlehead

This is an image of a real live Maine fiddlehead!

Have them in your state?  A green, some folks eat them with vinegar. 

Found growing along Maine rivers and brooks in early spring...you want to get them before they get mature.

Before the black flies discover you wandering along the stream and river banks. 

A company in Lewiston Maine cans them...wonder if other Active Rainers have some particular local favorite delicacies? 

Am not the pickled hogs feet kinda guy...try to stay away from floating food in a giant jar  by the cash register of some corner grocery even though have a sense of adventure and my Fiddleheading poking up thru groundtonsils still in place. 

Just the principle of watching them open the big jar and reaching in with tongs..(YIKES). 

The only hassle with fiddleheads is cleaning them from the brown flakes that need to be blown out before steaming them.

  Here (handing you a fok loaded with a big helping of steaming fiddleheads) Try some......(munch munch)

I have never even heard of fiddleheads.  I have spent most of my life in the west, except for 2 years in North Carolina but I don't think anything like that exist over here.

I actually saw a cooking show where they prepared some of those...I was a little aprehensive to say the least...but pickled ham hocks are mm..mm..good!

Pickled ham hocks  (chewing slowly)  Now there's something I suddenly have lost my appetite for...I know folks like them and it is on my to do list of getting used to having some new items in my diet...for now sticking to vegetables! Thanks for the comment Brad!  Marchel...we have to get you out more often and away from the same old meat and potatoes (wink)  Thanks for the shout!  Nice to know someone is reading these electrons!
