This is what I did...
I picked off all the brown furry stuff that the ferns sometimes have on them.
I felt very satisfied and happy after cleaning fiddleheads for almost 2.5 hours!
I boiled them twice to get rid of some of the tannins and bitterness they can have. After boiling them I put them in jars.
I boiled my pickling brine.
I waited for the water to boil and then waited for the jars to seal.
Voila! Four beautiful jars of pickled fiddleheads that I will enjoy later this year!
