Example Recipe:

Buttered Ferns

Also called Fiddle heads


The tender shoots of ferns that grow along mossy creek banks are one of springs rare treats, Most highly prized is the cinnamon fern, which taste both of asparagus and artichoke. Bracken and ostrich ferns are goos too, although tougher and saltier. Canned ferns are available in specialty shops, the best are those you pick fresh yourself.

To prepare for cooking: Sort, discarding any ferns that are discolored. Cut off stems-you want only the tightly curled heads. Wash carefully in cool water to remove all traces of sand.


Makes 4 servings

2 cups ferns, prepared for cooking

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. white pepper

1/2 cup boiling water

1/4 cup of melted butter

Place ferns in a saucepan along with salt, pepper and boiling water. Cover and simmer 20 to 30 minutes until tender. Drain well and add butter.


This would be a wonderful addition to a kitchen basket for a new bride. Something she could use for years!
