I thought we weren’t going to get any at all this year, the plants were so badly affected by the cold weather in late winter/early spring, but today I picked these two small ones.  As you can see in the photo (bottom right) they have no choke, so I just cut them in half and cooked them in olive oil and white wine, with some whole sweet onions.

Four photos of two tiny artichokes may seem a bit excessive, but I’m so pleased the plants have survived and these may be the only ones we get this year!

  1. >They will taste all the better when you thing they be the sole crop!Do you know that I have never eaten globe artichokes, Jerusalem yes, and delicious too. I must try them sometime but preferably fresh from the garden.
