Artichokes in Spain


IMG_20150414_180937

I was inspired to create this post from a new friend in here, Melissa from The Aran Artisan, who wrote a post about Artichokes and how they enjoy this delicious vegetable. She has a wonderful blog, as you should visit. As she writes: Making a living by creating every aspect and ingredient of daily life

In the area where I have been living since September last year, we have a large field with artichokes, as I did photograph yesterday to show you today. The field are more than large and they have been cutting the flowers since I arrived and they continue to cut 1-2 times per week. I have never before seen artichokes in so large a field.

  6. I’ve never seen artichokes growing either Irene – it’s a vegetable I’ve only ever had once and didn’t like, but I believe the way it’s prepared is what makes the difference!
