Ingredients

  • 2 cups fiddleheads
  • 1-2 small young wild leeks
  • 1 minced garlic clove

Directions

Rinse the fiddleheads and leeks. Put in pot with garlic, barely cover with water, or put in steamer. Boil gently till tender.

Drain off water and serve. ( Goes well with any meat dish ) and is very healthful and tastes very good!) You may even drink the cooking water, or add it to soup for even more healthy benefit!

Note: Wild fiddleheads and leeks can be found in early spring, in wet areas by streams. Pick the fiddleheads when they are still tightly curled.(They are the unopened fronds of the fiddlehead fern)
