Forest Foraging for Spring Edibles

Last weekend we ventured into the forests of Stratford, Ontario, and searched for wild leeks, Pheasant-back mushrooms, fiddleheads, Day Lily shoots, edible flowers, and other bites. Our guide, Peter, was fantastic! If you're interested in participating in one of his afternoons, I'll post the link here. After foraging, I prepared a big feast for my family. Fiddleheads tasted great pre-blanched and then sauteed with oil, lemon, and salt. I crisped-up the mushrooms and leeks, and steamed the day-lilies. All of the side-dishes paired perfectly with a nice white-fish. *Bonus during our foraging afternoon was visiting a local hobby-farm and playing with the baby goats. Forget having a dog...
