Bolton Talks to WVII About Fiddlehead Food Safety

Jason Bolton, assistant extension professor and statewide food safety specialist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with WVII (Channel 7) about guidelines to follow before eating fiddleheads. Bolton warned fiddleheads should never be consumed raw, and should be fully cleaned and cooked by steaming or boiling for about 12 to 15 minutes. “We do hear a lot about people just sauteing them, microwaving them at restaurants or even at home, and the food-borne illness resulting from that,” Bolton said, adding that typical food-borne illness symptoms, such as vomiting, come on fast and last for about a day.
