About Fiddleheads 

Fiddleheads are found along fresh waterways in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and North Eastern States. “Fiddleheads are to New Brunswick, what the Maple Leaf is to the rest of Canada”. They are thought to be a delicacy and have even been served to the Queen of England! 

 

Tips & Tricks 

Similar to apples or bananas, fiddleheads go through a natural oxidation process, once exposed to air the ends of the vegetable turns a dark green/brown color. This is to be expected and it’s important that consumers understand the characteristics of fiddleheads prior to purchasing them. Simply trim the ends off and they are ready to cook. 

 

Wash, Prepare & Enjoy 

From farm to table the sanitary conditions may vary. Once picked NorCliff Farms Inc. ensures that the cleaning process is performed with care and precision, what we cannot ensure is that during the transportation process or on retail displays sanitation is upheld. This is why NorCliff Farms Inc. encourages consumers to wash all produce prior to preparation. It is recommended to boil fiddleheads (approximately 8 minutes, of until tender) before consuming, however many people consume fiddleheads only a few minutes after boiling.
