Blanched and.mixed with tomato or salted egg. Fiddlehead fern or pak├┤. This fern is edible. These greens are.known to be a good source of vitamins and minerals, fatty acids.too. They.don't grow here in my area, so eating them.is not.that much unless someone.from my other hometown. And widly grown near the mountains. Have you had this.edible fern?

@toniganzon I didn't like it either since youth, except bok choy but since my uric acid problem I've decided to go green and have no regrets ever since.

I have checked the nutrient on this veggie, still moringa gets the upperhand and we don't have fern. Today I just cooked a soup with mustard green, bock choy, okra, belle pepper and carrots. but most of the time, moringa. It's vitamin A equals the cabbage type veggie.
Fiddlehead ferns are young, tender, tightly furled new-growth shoots of fern family plant, usually of ostrich fern. The curly fronds have a delicate flavor with distinctive nutrition profile comprising of antioxidants, omega-3 essential fatty acids, and vi

Yes, we have fiddlehead ferns here or pako. They grew near the river and in rainy seasons. They die during summer or hot seasons. I love this kind of food, better to prepare it in salad or fried with soy sauce.
