One of my favorite things about joining a local CSA has been being introduced to new fruits and veggies (well, mostly veggies). Most people have eaten an artichoke, but until tonight I had not. We received six baby artichokes in our most recent crates and we decided this was the evening to try preparing and eating a couple. I found this great website for beginners and steamed away. If you’ve never had an artichoke, give this a try. It’s an enjoyable new eating experience, and it tastes great too. I suggest mixing a little melted butter with a touch of seasoning salt and bay leaves for dipping. Have fun and enjoy!
