Are you a fan of the unique and tasty artichoke? There is some debate about exactly what it is. Most of us think of it as a vegetable due to the way we cook and eat it, but, technically speaking, this is the flower of a variety of thistle plant. The edible portion is actually the flower buds before they have bloomed.
I love it when I can buy fresh, local artichokes, but good ones can also be found in jars at the grocery store. Fresh artichokes are not difficult to prepare once you’ve gotten used to the technique and they are fun to eat. Artichoke hearts are easy to add to appetizers and entrees.
Whether you are starting from scratch or buying pre-packaged artichoke hearts, artichokes are delicious.
Following are an assortment of recipes to use both fresh and packaged artichokes anytime of the year.
