I love artichokes.
I grew up eating artichokes.
My parents made them all the time. They were always the special appetizer at Christmas and Easter.
My brother, now a Poet Laureate and author of over 20 books of poetry, would always say \”It might choke Artie but it won\’t choke Stymie\”. This quote from one of our favorite TV shows, The Little Rascals. AH, a poet\’s beginning begins somewhere!
I most often now use artichokes on pizza as pictured here:

I last made Stuffed Artichokes on New Year\’s Eve. They were delicious.
1/4 cup olive oil
