do you cook these? what do you do with them? have a favorite recipe to share?



I will say that i rarely buy them because they are too expensive for my frugal ways most of the time. LOL. I also shy away from them because most of the recipes seem to be butter or oil filled, totally yummy, but i watch my calories and try to avoid really fattening recipes. I do like some artichoke spinach dip, but just used canned/jarred artichoke hearts!

Can't wait to see other peoples responses, I think I am going to make some artichoke hummus with my artichoke. I have never bought one before but they were $2.49 at our local market so I decided to give it a try.

I have never bought an artichoke, and I don't think I've ever ate any...

they are yummy, but to make them, very labor intensive, and to eat them, just as labor intensive. To use canned artichoke hearts (i think in a jar more often than can....) is easier, but obviously not as fresh. Spinach artichoke dip is the best! I always made that with jarred hearts. I have had Sabra hummus' artichoke hummus and it is really delicious.
