The Fiddleheads Have Finally Come Out

In the Northeastern seaboard of North America, the fiddleheads are out and are being harvested.  Fiddleheads are the furled fronds of a wild fern that has yet unrolled to become the stalk and leaves.  Fiddleheads have antioxidant activity, are a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and are high in iron and fibre.

I was travelling to the east coast, and a local cafe was serving Cream of Fiddlehead soup and a biscuit.
