Have You Ever Eaten This Wild Michigan Food Delicacy?
Ever come across this plant on a walk in the woods? If you're a foodie, you might be tempted to grab it to take home and eat. Meet the fiddlehead.
Fiddleheads are a variety of fern. They are foraged and served steamed, sauteed or fried. They contain a high level of Vitamins A and C.
Fiddleheads are somewhat more common on the east coast but are found in Michigan. A lecture series by the Michigan State Extension in the Upper Peninsula included fiddleheads.
Here's a look a picking and cooking fiddleheads - and as the video notes, always be aware of what plant you're consuming and do research as some plants may be poisonous or toxic.
