Recipe for Fiddlehead Fern Soup

Soup made with fresh fiddlehead ferns are a great and unique idea for a dinner party or for a quick soup for 2. Our fiddlehead soup recipe is general for 6 servings, but can be adjusted for less or more.

Ingredients for Making Fiddlehead Soup:
1 1/2 Cups of Chopped Fiddleheads
2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
1/2 Medium Onion, chopped or minced
2 Tablespoons of Butter
3 1/2 Cups of Whole Milk (Low-Fat Milk or 2% can be substituted, however skim milk does not taste the same with the cream.)
1/2 Heavy Cream
Salt and Pepper as necessary for tasting

How to Make Fiddlehead Soup:
First and foremost, you must thoroughly clean and prepare your fiddleheads. Wash them with continuous water, do not soak them. Remove all leaves and brown coverings. Cut the stem of the fiddleheads so that you only have the round head left. Chop remaining fiddleheads into small pieces or chunks. In order to avoid fiddlehead poisoning, you may want to boil your fiddleheads prior to chopping and sauteing them. Boil until tender for about 10 minutes. If you have cooked fiddleheads before, then sauteing is ok. Melt the butter and bouillon cubes into a medium pan. You will then saute your chopped fiddleheads for 10 minutes with your onions in the pan. Add milk and heat thoroughly. Stir in the cream and add salt and pepper for taste. Serve your fiddlehead soup steaming hot. Enjoy!

Quebec Fiddleheads

I thought for sure, I would see fiddleheads on a menu at least. I often saw signs in Vermont on the drive up to Quebec. "Fiddleheads For Sale" Before I knew what fiddleheads were, this sign was always jarring to me. Just like signs that say,
"Free Wood

Of course my thought process always asked, "What the hell is a wood bunny?" You might laugh, but I am sure I am not the only one that has done that. Well fiddlehead season is still happening, and we are constantly shipping our fiddleheads for our customers.

A Visit to Quebec City

This past memorial day weekend, I took a short trip across the border to visit Quebec City. I finally decided to stay at the Frontenac. For those of you that have never been to the Old City of Quebec, you have no idea what this hotel is like. Everyone who has visited Quebec, knows where the Frontenac is. It is a huge castle fortress that is beyond glamorous. I usually stay at the Days Inn on the Rue de Hotels, or the Hotel Clarendon, which is very nice, but I always wanted to stay at the FAIRMONT LE CHâTEAU FRONTENAC.

I decided to splurge this weekend and stay for 2 nights. For a hotel that averages $600 CAN per night, I was lucky to find a deal for a King room with no view. However, to my surprise I was able to finagle a room with an amazing view of the St. Lawrence River and the Quebec boardwalk. Throughout the weekend, I could hear a saxophone playing in the distance from my room. The room was nice and the room service was awesome, but nothing compared to the pool and courtyard on my floor. I was on the 6Th floor, and so was the Club Frontenac. The Club was private for the floor and had a pool, kid's pool, hot tub, gym, and outdoor courtyard.

I went to my usual places, La Piazza for pizza and pasta. I never miss the Crepe place just a few steps from the Frontenac. On Sunday night, there was an outside orchestra playing to a light show and fireworks outside the old city walls. We walked around a bit, and enjoyed some street shows and acrobatics. I had fun and it was a very relaxing weekend trip.

What I didn't see were any fiddleheads in Quebec, however I did see the trucking companies that we use going back over the border. Ruma Fruit has fiddleheads today, so I may have been travelling next to our fiddleheads. I had a great time, and I totally recommend staying at the Frontenac.

Fiddlehead Question Answered: Bar-B-Que and Fiddleheads

Ruma's Fruit does not recommend barbecuing fiddleheads to cook them. Using the Sautéeing method below is your best option. If you are insistent on having that fiddlehead barbecued taste, we recommend boiling your fiddleheads first. This will ensure that the fiddleheads are cooked thoroughly and then you may try to barbecue them. Please be warned that barbecuing can remove the fiddlehead flavoring that boiling or sauteing ensures.

Thank You JForest for your Fiddlehead Question!

How to Cook and Prepare Fiddlehead Ferns

Fiddlehead ferns can be steamed, poached, braised, and boiled. We find that boiling your fiddlehead ferns is the best way to prepare them to be sauced, sauteed, and dressed for your salad.

1 pound of Fiddlehead Ferns will provide 4 - 6 servings.

Before you start cooking your fresh fiddleheads, you must prepare the ferns . Each fiddlehead fern may be 1 - 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

How To Prepare Fiddlehead Ferns

Trim each fiddlehead base and leave only a tiny tail. If there is a brown or black covering over the fiddlehead, wash it off with cold water. Rinse all of your cut fiddlehead ferns in runny water. Do not soak the fiddleheads. Once you are satisfied with your cutting and washing, drop all the fiddleheads into a large pot of boiling water. You may salt the water as you see fit as well. Boil until each fiddlehead fern is tender. Test often and keep on boil for 5 minutes or more. If undercooked, the flavor of the fiddleheads will not come through. Drain your cooked fiddlehead fern and serve immediately. Pour melted butter on each dish to ensure flavoring.

Cooking Fiddleheads with Sauce

Most fiddlehead connoisseurs prefer to spice things up a bit. Fiddleheads can be sauced with a variety of different flavors. You may want to try a Hollandaise sauce or perhaps a Maltaise cheese or other cheese sauce. Serve your fiddlehead ferns hot after drained and add 1 cup of sauce.

Cooking Fiddleheads Ferns Sauteed in Butter

Drop all your cooked fiddleheads into a pot of cold ice water. Drain them and refirgerate them until you are prepared to serve. When you are about to serve your fiddlehead dish, take your fiddlehead ferns and place them into a large skillet. Pour at least 3 tablespoons of over your fiddleheads until sauteed through.

Cooking Fiddleheads Served with Vinaigrette

Drop all your cooked fiddleheads into a pot of cold ice water. Drain them and dry well. Combine your fiddlehead ferns with 3/4 cup of light mustard vinaigrette.
