    I drank the kefir, all of it- so hungry but feel fine and happy & plan to eat like a maniac all summer long. Constipated as usual and hope it's not the coconut oil- that stuff is really working for me, I'm waking up early with so much energy.

    try some magnesium for the constipation --- or just a little Epsom Salts in a glass of warm water. It works like a charm.

    Okay - whats a fiddlehead? Never heard of it............. going to google it.

    Edit: This is what I found........
    Fiddleheads can prove a delightful addition to any locavore’s diet, if, that is, the curled ferns are cooked properly.

    Seven cases of illness associated with eating fiddleheads have been reported by residents to Toronto Public Health since the beginning of May, spokeswoman Kris Scheuer said. One case involved a family of four.

    Raw or undercooked fiddleheads have been known to sporadically cause unpleasant symptoms of food poisoning since 1994, according to Health Canada. The symptoms typically last for less than a day.

    Only a few people have been affected, but their temporary sickness serves as a reminder to the public to wash and cook the seasonal greens carefully and not to eat them raw, Scheuer said.

    “It’s not that you’ll always get ill, we just sent out the message to reduce the likelihood,” she said.

    The growing season for the ostrich fern sprouts is short, lasting from about the end of April till mid-June. The ferns grow in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes and are typically picked from the wild.

    It’s not known why the spiralled veggies, nicknamed after their violinlike appearance, can make people ill. Scientists haven’t been able to trace any particular toxin to fiddleheads, according to Health Canada, so it’s up to chefs to cook them properly.

    When done right, they’re delicious, healthy and popular among foodies. They taste similar to spinach or asparagus, and have twice as many antioxidants as blueberries, according to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada research.

    Health Canada recommends washing fiddleheads several times in cold water and removing as much of the papery, brown husk as possible. Then, steam them for 10 to 12 minutes, or boil for 15.

    Get rid of the water afterward.

    Make sure you cook them right...........

    Fiddleheads are the immature, still coiled, leaves of Ostrich ferns.
    Thus they are a seasonal treat... only available when the ferns first begin to unfurl in the spring.
    At home in TN fiddlehead season is concurrent with morel season, or at least a good degree of overlap.
    Delicious! And delicious together too!
    Like delicate asparagus... but greener.

    Next you all have to have a go at eating daylilys. Usually just before they open. YUM!

Once I try them plain, I plan to try an Emeril recipe for a fiddlehead/wild mushroom ragout, it's actually primal. I'll post it here if it turns out good.
    Yum. I lucked out this year. Car Salesman Son came home with a bag that a customer sold him for just $1.50.

    Tomi, it's not at all hard to cook them properly. I've never had any trouble. Boil them for five minutes and serve with garlic butter. Yum! Still, I don't know that I would be willing to spend 11 bucks on them.

    Ostrich ferns grow and spread like weeds. Anybody with a shady corner could probably grow their own.

    Rant about guys. So this guy I've been seeing texted me yesterday morning asking what I was doing for the next 2 days, I just told him doing stuff around the house (I'm off work this week). He's like, "I can come help you tonight." I was like, SUH-weet! Told him I'd make him dinner as a reward and then did absolutely nothing around the house for the rest of the day. He texted me at 5 pm saying he wasn't sure when he'd be done work for the evening, I told him it was fine and just to let me know when he gets off.

    Finally at 8 PM, I'm like, "Uhhh, are you coming or what?" He's telling me he's at some work dinner and doesn't know when it'll be done.

    Eventually, he texted me at 11:30 (after I already went to bed) saying they got super-drunk and he was in no condition to drive (I personally found it preposterous he still thought I'd wanna see him at that time!). I just texted him back thanking him for wasting my evening, to which he said that they have these dinners every month and it doesn't normally take this long and that he's sorry.

    If a guy I was dating did that (any more than once in a blue moon) I would toss him back in the pond and keep fishing.

    Ugh. Maybe he's been reading those "pickup artist" books that recommend treating women like shit to make them interested in you?

    Like "The Rules", I am eternally boggled that anyone thinks this crap is healthy in the long-term.

    I am planning to plant some next year, once I have a side of the walkout stripped off grass & can extend the 'shade bed' up the slope. ATM, my shade bed get blasted by a few hours of afternoon sun, when it hurts, so ferns die. (Sigh).
