A fiddlehead fern by any other name still tastes as savory! This crop is also known as pahole on Maui, ho’i’o on the Big Island, warabi by the local Japanese, pako by Filipinos, or “the long-haired fish of the land.” Fiddle fern is so delicious in fact, we read that in Hawaiian mythology the fern’s addictive flavor once trapped a pair of ravenous demonic sisters in stone. Boil or blanch and saute, and enjoy a truly local and irresistible product that we’ve rarely seen in stores or restaurants! Let everyone know you tried it here first!!
