Food Blog (non-recipe)

ambrosiaPrices for this lovely thing have been running $4.00 and up, and just dropped to around $1.00. That means we are now getting local artichokes. The difference is between eating cardboard and ambrosia. We will be having them several times a week for a while.

One recipe I read said to boil (steam) for 45 minutes, but that is absurd. Even quite large ones are nicely done in 25 minutes. Some people like them cold with mayo for dipping, but I'm a fan of eating them still hot with melted butter.

My father had an artichoke plant in his yard in Tucson. Whacking a couple and having them for dinner fresh from harvest was a memorable experience.
