Oh, but I liked you so much....

When we moved here a few months ago, every few days we were given lots and lots of warabi, which is type of edible fern. It's one of the wild foods that grows around the place here and is in season for most of June it would seem. Once we worked out how to cook it we were so excited, it tastes fantastic! It's a bit of an effort, you need to soak it with wood ash and warm water for 5 hours and then wash it thoroughly before you can cook it, but totally worth it....or so we thought....! But, shock, shock, horror, it turns out that you shouldn't eat very much of it because it causes cancer! Hmmm. Maybe not smoking cigerettes makes up the difference? This is the last lot of warabi we were given a few months ago a couple of hours into the preparation process.
