Magic Fiddle

"Fiddlehead ferns, a mild vegetable with asparagus-like flavor,
are only in season for a few weeks. One big reason to squeeze them
into your diet this spring: They're high in alpha-carotene, recently
linked to longevity. When CDC researchers analyzed levels of the
photochemical in more than 15,000 adults, they found that those with
high levels had a lower risk of death. Saute the delicate ferns in olive
oil with chopped garlic and fresh basil."
