New Thing #85: Fiddleheads


I never knew about fiddleheads until I worked for a company called T4G. The President would host a music festival/family party/fundraiser every year on his farm in New Brunswick. Being the design and marketing arm of the business, it would always fall to us to come up with a theme and branding for the event. One year it was decided that it would be known as The Fiddlehead Jam. 

Ever since then I wanted to try these little unfurled fern fronds and thanks to a little friendly taunt from my friend Dan on Twitter, I picked some up. 

A quick 12 minute boil later and I was snacking on the most divine, sweet, buttery vegetables I’ve ever eaten. These will be savoured every spring for the rest of my life.
