Yes, it happened again this year. I’m in love. Artichoke season is upon us and the most brilliant artichokes are available, if you are lucky enough to find them. These gorgeous Baby Purple Fiesole Artichokes were sent to me by Frieda’s Produce again this spring. I gushed about them last year – along with my new lens… that I still love, too! I couldn’t stop staring at them. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of them. It happened again this year.
The prep work is like zero. There’s no hairy choke inside to remove, so that means more yummy artichoke to munch on. And the flavor reminds the hubby and me of eggplant. Only better.
Nutty, meaty, delicious.
I’m so in love….

Disclosure: Frieda’s Produce was kind enough to send me these beautiful artichokes to play with as they are celebrating with their April Artichoke Festival! I was not paid to write this post. The opinions I expressed here are my own. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t blog about it!
