Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the fiddleheads, return to a boil and cook until they are almost tender and turn pale green, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Serve. Very good with butter ;-)
Also very good in Soup.

Taken last Spring at Granby.
Thank you for looking.
Have a good week.

Ah Luc, a Canadian Fern. And how well you show it, it is so sharp and delicate looking.
And you can cook too - I must try the recipe on our NZ ferns, but I don't think our tree ferns would come out too tasty!! Too tough I think, especially our Silver Ferns.
Kia ora, Janice

Hi Luc

Nice close shot. Very good light allowing for clear sharp details. I like the clear colours against the OOF BG. Good work. Thanks.

Very nice picture of the fern. I like the details and colors. The blurred BG is very good too.

Great macro Luc. Colourfull with very good sharpness and very good details. Very good job. WEll done.

Aren't these amazing? A beautiful shot Luc, quite arty! The green is so vibrant.
Great recipe! I have a book called Food for Free (Richard Mabey) which is about living off the land. He doesn't mention Fern so I need to check if ours are edible before trying it.
I would probably prefer a bit more space to the left of the image, and also above (so it has room to unfurl ;-) ).
Thanks for posting.

Hi Luc,
A simple and beautiful shot. The composition and framing are excellent. The colors and detail are perfect to me. Well done!

Well composed, sharp and lovely details, great color, lighting and POV.

Thank you for sharing this with us, (in the visual sense...)

My gardens have been filled with these, but I never knew how to cook them. My nepali freind bought them before, good!

Hi Luc,
Sorry for rushed visit, very busy night.
A well deserved big green smile, thanks for posting.
Have a good week.

Quite amazing the things we can learn on this site.
Nicely seen and captured!

Very nice Luc. Excellent detail and colors. Very well done my friend. Thank You.
See workshop.
P.S. In the more than one year I've posted to TN, I've avoided the workshop. You are my 3rd attempt. Hope you don't mind my friend :-)
