I know its a little late in the season but does anyone know where to buy these?
WTF is a bracken fiddlewhatever?
If you've seen a fern sending up a shoot, where it appears curled up and ready to open up, that part is the fiddlehead. When it is still tightly bunched up in its curl, the fiddlehead is at its most succulent state.
Huh. Now I know. Thanks.
Like Professor Salt says, you can get them at Japanese markets. They sell them at Korean markets too year round... we use them a lot in our side dishes!
In season, you can also try the Japanese markets like Mituwa and Marukai. They're called warabi (わらび) in Japanese.
You can also get them pickled year round in plastic pouches at the same Japanese markets.
IN season, I've seen them at Gelson's, Whole Foods, and farmer's markets.
Have also seen them at Trader Joe's but can't vouch for them as I've always gotten them from the farmers markets.
It depends on which farmers market. Probably the big ones in LA like SM and Hollywood.
But, out in OC, I've never seen them or morels at even the OC's biggest farmers markets
They have them -- in season, which this is not -- at the fancy greens stand that is along the "main row" of booths, about halfway back, near Ha's Apple Farm. The place that also does the CSA boxes.
The season here, if I recall right, is March.
I've bought them twice from Trader Joe's hoping for the best. Each time, when I opened the package I had to throw them out.
