Edible signs of spring

Blossoms, bulbs, leaves unfurling... spring has sprung! Other (edible) signs of spring are:
Fiddleheads: tight pinwheels that emerge from the soil and are only edible before they unfurl into fern fronds. Taste woody and are delicious steamed. See here for much more info about identifying and cooking fiddleheads.

Ramps: part of the onion family, ramps taste like a cross between spring onions and scallions. Also known as wild leeks.

Morels: treasures for their rich, intense flavour; excellent sautéed in butter or top roasted.
Do your research before foraging so you are sure about what you are picking!
