Have you ever eaten fiddlehead? Fiddleheads are the furled shoots of certain varieties of young ferns, and according to Wikipedia, fiddlehead is part of the traditional diet in northern France, in parts of Asia, and among Native Americans. They are not cultivated, so they’re only available seasonally. And that season is… early spring!
Some delicious-looking fiddlehead recipes:

Pickling seems like a great option for extending the life of fiddleheads, since they don’t keep well at all. Crunchy, pickle-y, yum!
