Fiddlehead Ferns

Locals call it “PAKKO”. During childhood days, my friends and I occasionally stroll along the valley of “IGI” collecting “pakko.” We ate some of them raw while most were sautéed by mother for dinner.

During picnics, the guys would normally collect them in bundles along the river banks and blanch them with the Pinikpikan stock. The fiddlehead ferns are widely available for picking for anyone who wishes to do so, along the path from Echo Valley to the Underground river entrance.
