Fiddleheads & Canadian Bacon


Got some fiddleheads at the farmer’s market today, and was inspired by a recipe from Mark’s Daily Apple

This was one serving:

4 ounces of fiddleheads

1 tsp coconut oil

3 tablespoons minced onions

1 slice canadian bacon, chopped.

Steam the fiddleheads in a mesh steamer for 5 minutes.

In the meantime, saute the onions in the coconut oil and then add the bacon.  When the fiddleheads are done, add them to the saute pan and cook for another 4-5 minutes.

Very yummy with just a few grinds of black pepper on top!

Fiddleheads!!!! I used to hate them when I was a kid, but I'd love to find some fresh local ones to try again. I actually live very close to a "Fiddlehead Trail" :)

I had never heard of a fiddlehead before reading this post - I had to head to wikipedia to check it out. Sounds like an interesting meal.
