While you can totally purchase pre-destroyed fledglings to save time, preparing the entire fledglings happens rapidly. Trim off the root stem, eliminate any outside leaves that are carmelized or harmed (they'll probably tumble off in any case), at that point split and meagerly cut. Once prepared, the fledglings cook in a skillet with garlic and red pepper drops until the strands are carmelized at the edges and have contracted down in size (don't stress in the event that it would seem that the dish is stuffed when you add them all in).
