Recipe Ingredients for Fiddleheads with Butter and Lemon

1/2 pound fiddlehead ferns (11563), each about 1 1/2 inches in diameter
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon (fresh) lemon juice or to taste
1 Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Fiddleheads with Butter and Lemon

  1. Trim the tails so that the coils are even.

  2. Soak the fresh fiddleheads in cold water and swirl to remove the brown outer coating.

  3. Bring 1/2 inch of water to a boil in a shallow pan. Add the butter, lemon juice, and the fiddleheads. Spread out so that the ferns are in a single layer as much as possible.

  4. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes or until the fiddleheads are fork tender.

  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp fresh thyme, if using, and serve.
