Fiddleheads, YUCK!

This folks is what yucky fiddleheads look like.

Ok, in response to people asking what a fiddlehead is in my last post on the questionnaire, thought I'd post a pic and give you what this site has to say about them. I personally think that they are disgusting, my hubby likes them. YUCK. Just thinking of them make me sick.

"Fiddleheads emerge in their miniature dervish dancers around the first week of May. In lowland forests from the Great Lakes to the Maritimes of Canada the Ostrich Fern emerges in profusion. Tiny gray-green spirals reaching into the first really warm days of Spring. Each of them wearing their own little fur overcoat to protect them when it was chillier weather. Snapped up and eaten by whoever has the sense and taste to do it."

If you want to go wild and read more about those lovely things, go here:

They look sooo disgusting. Not to mention that website you linked to is mostly mushroom related.. I try to stay on an anti-fungus diet, so I don't think I'll be trying fiddleheads anytime soon..not even sure you could get them here if I did want to try.
