Kogomi / wild fiddlehead ferns

Spring is here and it was just the time to collect the young wild ferns before they get mature. 

Kogomi, translated as mountain vegetables, are popular in Japan as a symbol of spring. As they are only available for a short time, it makes them a rare seasonal delicacy. 

However, we could find many of wild fiddlehead ferns in Berlin.

The mild flavour of Kogomi is good as Pesto, as Tempura or simply with Soy Sauce, Miso or Sesame together.

Lets try them !
