Artichokes


A relative of the thistle, the leaves and heart of globe artichokes are edible (the hearts are delicious pickled too). They're ideal in the flower garden too, attracting bees to the flowers if left unharvested. Jerusalem artichokes belong to the sunflower family, have a distinctive smoky flavour and are perfect roasted or added to stews and casseroles.
