Just trying to get this posted before the season is over. I haven't tried this yet but it sounded good.

I have never made fiddlehead ferns before but was very pleasantly surprised by the flavor and texture of them. Your recipe allows the ingredients to shine yet elevates it by adding garlic and butter. You can't go wrong. Thank you for sharing.
