Fuller Quoted in BDN Article About Fiddleheads Recipe Book

David Fuller, an agricultural and non-timber forest products professional with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, was quoted in a Bangor Daily News article about “Fiddlemainia: Maine’s Organic Edible Fern,” a recently published book by Monty Barrett and Lin Diket that includes 125 recipes using fiddleheads. Fuller said fiddleheads have been a part of Maine cuisine for as long as people have lived here. “Fiddleheads herald spring. This is the earliest green, and it’s a big part of our culture,” he said. The article also included tips by Fuller on how to pick and safely prepare the plant to avoid food-borne illnesses. “You have to remember that this is a wild food, but that’s also what is so cool about it,” he said.
