That artichokes are actually the tough bottom part of a really pretty flower?
I have loved artichokes since I was a kid because my mom loved them and used to cook them for us all the time. Recently they have been $3 and $4 a piece in the grocery store but I still get them every once in a while. I boil them and chew on the green leaves and then eat the center dipped in butter.
Have you ever eaten an artichoke?
