Artichoke, 1 Pc
The globe artichoke is actually the bud of a thistle. The leaves cover the fuzzy center called the "choke", which sits on top of the meaty core, called the "heart". The heart is amazingly delicious, and the innermost leaves are also tender enough to be nibbled on with your teeth. However, the choke will be too fibrous to eat. 1 artichoke.
Variety: Globe artichoke
Country of Origin: France
To serve whole, cut the tough tips of the leaves off with scissors. Using a knife, slice the base off, before trimming off the pointed top. Pull the pale centre leaves out, then scoop the choke out with a spoon, without disturbing the heart underneath.
