Remembering how I said the flavor as a kid.
While not the fiddlehead that we have in our salads or in a sauté, Cinnamon Ferns-Osmundastrum cinnamomeum are an attractive species with its fine hairs and pleasing spring green. They are common and widespread. This one is in our small wooded area out back.
As to how this fern acquired its name…
I’ve always thought this looks a bit like a throne. A seat fit for fern royalty although not a royal fern.
