beautiful greens

It was a quiet Saturday. Out on my morning errands I saw these three sights. I was reminded that while I may rave on about coral and orange, it's green that I will always love. Green is transforming our world these days and every day a new green appears. I love green -- and it looks even more ravishing on a rainy day.

I couldn't resist buying a bunch of fiddleheads. My mom used to make these. I've never made them before so will be looking up prep instructions. Suggestions welcome.

I bought fiddleheads yesterday for the first time! I found a recipe that said to soak them for about 20 minutes in water and salt to get the 'grit' out, steam them for about 12 minutes, then fry them in some butter and lemon. Very yummy!!

That's how we always make them! I always thought of them as a NB specialty, but am thrilled to find them here in TO! I always pair them with wild rice too - for some reason they are like milk and cookies in my mind!

Shannon and Lisa, I made them - lots of butter and pepper. I loved them but my husband didn't prob won't be making them too often. I've been told sautéeing in garlic is another good way to cook -- def want to try them that way.
