I got more fern fronds this year than any other year. Its three years old.
This is pic day 6.
That is a gorgeous sight, Kate. Those look like fiddle-heads.
I agree that it's a really lovely plant Kay. My ferns are just beginning to put out new frond curls now too but I don't think they have as many as yours.
Kate,..very nice,..i have lots of ferns all are gone past the stage yours are in,..i wonder does anyone bother to eat the Faggot ( tip of the Fern ),..sold in some supermarkets.
I have eaten them when I was living and working in Alaska. I fried them in a stir fry.
Sjoerd,..do you recall the taste,..like Chick Peas,..sort of nutty flavor
I think that it was more a nutty flavour...but to honest, I cannot clearly recall. I just remember that it was tasty. I gathered my own in the wild.
Sjoerd; I never heard of that Fiddle - head Fern. I looked it up on Google too...Interesting Fern.
I doubt I could eat any though.
Its got Omega 3 and Omega 6; In Indonesia, young fiddlehead ferns are cooked in a rich coconut sauce spiced with chili pepper, galangal, lemongrass, turmeric leaves and other spices. This dish is called gulai pakis or gulai paku, and originated from the Minangkabau ethnic group of Indonesia. In the Philippines, fiddlehead fern or pakô, is a delicacy, often made into a salad with tomato, salted egg slices, and a simple vinaigrette dressing.
