What does fiddlehead taste like?

Pei | | Apr 3, 2007 11:17 PM

I saw these at the market the other day, and I've looked on the home cooking board to see how people prepare them.

But, dear hounds, what do they taste like?

They look furry and pod-like, and remind me of okra. Would the taste be similar? Are they slimy, crunchy, grassy, sweet, bitter, what?

TIA.
