hi xxd, welcome. (have you eaten yet?)

just in case anyone's curious, bracken is a fern, which most westerners would know as fiddleheads.

here's a link: http://www.gloriamundipress.com/foods_bracken_fern.htm

very thank you for your reply
i haven't made a adv about the chinese wild mushroom and the seweed products, like nori, laver, and dulse,but every know that the chinese wild mushroom and the seweed products,like nori,laver,and dulse,are famus on the world.
the basic way to choose wild mushroom is that the soil number,eatable part,useful part,tasteful part,etc.
the basic way to avoid the poisonous are follow:
a)you break the wild mushroom,then touch the broken place with your tongue(becareful,don't eat),if the taste is bitter,hot peppery taste,it is poisonous.otherwise it is not poisonous.
b)if the insect have eaten the wild mushroom,while the wild mushroom is growing the wild mushroom is not poisonous.
c)the place the wild mushroom come from is also important,
same kind of wild mushroom come from different place perhaps are very different,the chinese yunnan's wild mushroom are the best in china and on the world.if you know the wild mushroom name is not poisonous,then i am sure the chinese yunnan's wild mushroom is not poisonous,other countries'wild mushroom i can't guarnantee
.for example the chinese bracken is not poisonous,but the UK's bracken is poisonous.
i hope my answer can make you satified.
if you have any problem,please tell me.
i want to exchange with you for everything
best regards

xxdxxd2004, I am a horticulturalist, and actually had a chance to visit your country some years ago with a group of women in the same business. The purpose of the visit was to share our experience with Chinese women who had the same interests. Unfortunately, my daughter had just died, and I had her little 3 year old boy to care for, and I was afraid to leave him.
I live in a rural area in the center of the United States, and we have a number of wild foods available here. There are wild greens (polk, dandelion, lambsquarters, purslane, wild mustard, chicory, mullein, cattails and garlic) in the spring, as well as morel mushrooms, which are a real delicacy. We have plentiful sassafras trees, whose roots and leaves make a nutritious and tasty tea that tastes like rootbeer, and burdock, whose roots are similar to potatoes. Later we pick wild blackberries, elderberries, mulberries and crab apples for jellies and jams. In late summer, there are puffballs for frying, and chicken of the woods mushrooms, which are wonderful in soups or stews. In the fall, after frost, we have black walnuts, persimmons and hickory nuts to gather.
