- Supporting my GL Habit
A quick google search seems to talk about possible toxicity of fiddleheads (but then other hits seemed to say that's not true). I'm not sure if I'd risk it with the pigs. But I'm just basing that on what I found on google.
It's a HUGE thing around here and it is fiddlehead season now :)
I just read through that site and came across this
Fiddlehead ferns are a good source of vitamins A and C. Fiddleheads should not be served raw as they have a slight bitterness until cooked and may cause stomach upset if eaten raw in quantity. Health Canada advises that fresh fiddleheads must be properly cooked before being consumed.
So maybe it's better if I dont give them any.
