Local Fiddleheads and leftovers

I went to a new market yesterday here in town that advertised local asparagus. I am a sucker for asparagus and love it when fresh local asparagus comes available. I also found these little babies. Fresh, just picked, wild Manitoba Fiddleheads. I had seen them before but had never tried them. They are amazing! They taste very closely to asparagus.

We had leftovers from last night paired with fiddleheads which were steamed for 10 minutes then sauteed in a pan with chopped red onion and garlic with some earth balance. They were divine. I am thinking of heading back to get some more of these this week since they are only available for 3 weeks out of the year.
