Exploring artichokes

By Olivia Fowler

I wasn’t exposed to artichokes as a child and was in my twenties before ever tasting one. After that, there was no going back. They’re available in local grocery stores and also canned and jarred on the shelf. They add pizzazz to a salad and are delicious on their own.

The grilled artichoke recipe includes instructions on how to prepare a fresh version, and I hope you’ll try this out as well as some of the other recipes offered this week.
