How to cook fiddleheads
Health Canada urges Canadians to never consume raw or undercooked fiddleheads since these spring greens have been associated with cases of food poisoning. Here are its recommendations for properly preparing fiddleheads:
- Start by removing as much of the brown husk as possible.
- To get rid of the rest of the husk and dirt, wash your fiddleheads in multiple changes of cold water.
- Cook fiddleheads before adding them to stir-fries, frittatas or any other dish by boiling them for 15 minutes. Or, steam them for 10-12 minutes.
