OKAY! Thanks for that important information!You don't want to. I have a friend who has accidently ate other ones and we were just talking about it this weekend. She and her husband were fine but the fiddleheads had no taste or were bitter. I have heard of people having upset stomachs. Anything is possible but I haven't heard of them being like mushrooms where a "look-a-like" will kill you.
To me, fiddleheads have a wonderful sweet taste sauteed very lightly in butter.
Light and sweet and I suppose you could batter them. But... not having the Southern gene, I'm not tempted to batter and fry I think battering and frying a fiddlehead would make it look like a battered and fried Oreo!
