Artichoke Flowers


It's a shame to let artichokes go to flower - they taste so good before that stage! The store-bought artichokes just don't measure up to the home-grown variety either. Clare wanted to know what an artichoke flower looks like. Aren't they beautiful?

Lovely, Susan. Thank you - a bit like a cornflower-cactus combo. So an artichoke is a sort of bud! It seems obvious now I come to think of it.

gorgeous. I love artichokes (to eat that is-- I didn't even realise they flowered!)
