    Best to Buy

    Artichokes are available all year long, and peak from March through May.

    Prep & Store

    Wash artichokes just before cooking. Cut off the tips of spikier outside leaves.

    Quick & Easy Recipe

    Immerse clean, whole artichokes in a large pan of cold water and 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of olive oil. Cover and bring to boil, simmering for 25 to 30 minutes. To eat, simply pull off leaves, dip in lemon butter, vinaigrette, or sauce, and scrape the pulp with teeth. Discard remainder of leaf.

    Nutrition Notes

    Artichokes are an excellent source of vitamin C and folic acid, and a good source of magnesium and potassium.
