Artichokes are a type of thistle, cultivated to be edible. They seem like a lot of work to prepare, but it’s so worth it! The Pajaro Valley in California is the perfect growing area for these beauties, growing on family farms all over the area. Sauté steamed artichokes with garlic, fry, or make into a classic dip.
