Spring Artichokes!

I’ve only had my artichoke plant since last year, but I am already growing very fond of it! It is now producing several artichokes, and because I have only one plant, I treat my cherished micro-crop with great care.

It also means that I harvest and cook only one artichoke at any one time, so I really appreciate them!

I am cooking the artichoke seen in the photo right now and can’t wait to eat it.

Preparing an artichoke does take a little bit of effort but totally worth it.

How To: I found a very helpful video that includes in the beginning a demonstration of how to prepare an artichoke. The video is actually intended as instruction for how to make a Niçoise salad, which is also quite delicious, but for those just looking for a how-to on preparing an artichoke, I recommend this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt4ofZjECyI
