are the fiddleheads from a specific type of fern or are all ferns OK?
While there are a few varieties of ferns that will work, the Ostrich Fern is the best of the bunch.
I don't know of any that grow wild here in BC. Maybe if someone else knows they can enlighten...
At one time I toyed with the idea of growing them, until The Missuz pointed out we would need a few acres to produce enough to make it worthwhile! Lol
I've always just bought them whenever I can find them.
They do grow wild in BC, used to pick them every spring as a kid in the northwest. I can’t say they aren’t on the island but my few half assed attempts haven’t yielded any of the right ones yet.
Marinated a whole lamb shoulder overnight:
Then cooked it to medium rare on the BarBee:
No pix of the finished product as it was consumed instantaneously!!
Thanks for bringing it up, I did a little digging and it looks like I have a perfect spot in the yard to grow some ostrich ferns. Looks like we'll have a nice spring harvest in a year or 2. Seeds/spores are cheap on the interwebs.
Crapped the bed and forgot to take a pic.
Fresh from the Tofino waters yesterday did a nice lunch.

All of that......AND I had 3 gals as my dates (only one of which I am romantically involved with....haha).......AND.....this was our view on North Chesterman's Beach.
Nice Pipps, where two of the gals the palm twins
They don't do lunch or come out in the dining room with company around. 6 would have been a crowd.
