Fiddle Heads Attempt #1

This is our first attempt at fiddle heads this spring. They were good, but we've since done WAY better. Everyone probably knows how to grill a steak and how to cook rice already, so we're not going to talk about that here.

1/2 lb Fiddle heads ends trimmed
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp jarred garlic (could use fresh garlic but it would give it a much stronger garlic taste)
1 tsp lemon juice

  1. Boil fiddle heads for 5 minutes in salted water in order to get rid of the brown coat that grows on the fiddle heads to protect them over the winter (it's this that makes the fiddle heads bitter, so you have to boil them even if you plan on pan frying them as well).
  2. Mix the butter, garlic and lemon, pour on top. This mixture is really good if you have the rice underneath because it flavours the rice as well.
