I just had the extreme pleasure of eating some fiddleheads (Ostrich fern) that I accidentally transplanted along with some strawberries; I have resolved to go find some growing "in the wild" this week (if there are any still in the fiddlehead stage of growth, that is). The flavor, after being sautéed in lightly-salted sweet cream butter, reminded me of fresh-from-the-garden green beans.
