Fiddlehead Season is Coming: Here’s How to Prepare the Maine Delicacy [VIDEO]

Ah, yes, those delicious little ferns can be found all over Maine, but only for a very short time.

“Fiddleheads are the coiled tips of young ostrich ferns that grow near brooks, rivers and lakes in Maine during late April, May and early June, depending on when the snow has melted,” an article on VisitMaine.com states.

They need to be picked young, according to VisitMaine.com, which means fiddlehead-picking season is short.

A lot of Mainers like to find and pick their own, so just make sure you have the land owners’ permission where you are searching for them.
