Fiddleheads, a predominantly Maine delicacy, from ostrich fern, are gathered in Spring, and now is the time to try them. Usually steamed or boiled, I came across an interesting recipe in the local newspaper –
A ‘Maine Martini’ Here is the recipe –
1 1/2 oz Maine made cold River Vodka
3/4oz Bartlett Winery Pear French Oak dry
1 0r 2 picked Spruce Bush Farm picked fiddleheads, chilled
Chill martini glass, gently combine vodka and wine.
Add fiddleheads, and enjoy!
