Gosari / Kosari (고사리) is the young stem of fernbrake (or fiddlehead). It is commonly used to make a side dish or soup / stew (e.g. yukgaejang) in Korean cooking. Among other things, gosari namul is seasoned with soy sauce, minced garlic, sesame oil and sesame seeds. So it has a mildly garlicky and salty taste. Also, you should expect a strong nutty aroma coming from sesame oil and sesame seeds. They quickly overtake the fernbrake, in a good way. It smells and tastes warm and earthy
