Photo du Jour - les Artichauts

Locally grown, plump artichauts at the market yesterday. Steamed and dipped in melted butter...the flavor is rich and lush and spring! Pin It

Oh my! What a gorgeous treat! Enjoy!

Wow! I've never eaten an artichoke as fresh as those appear. I'm convinced that the artichokes in the supermarkets on the East Coast are at least a month old by the time they're prepared and eaten.

so simple and so good.

ARGH!!! That's torture! Artichokes are my favourite vegetable and we can't get them here - not even frozen or in jars

Loulou said...

Aren't they beautiful??? I love artichokes.

I remember them in the States as being smaller and not as plump. Still delicious though!

That's one of the things that I love about them. Better when not fussed with. Simple food!

OH no!!! Say it isn't true?
You need to come down here in the spring and have an artichoke feast.

You're definitely on - not this year, but if all goes well, spring 2010.

Yum, I just had one for lunch.

With melted butter?
