Did you know that the artichoke dates back in history as one of the foods consumed by the Ancient Greek and Romans? Artichokes are native to the Mediterranean, and were said to be harvested on the island of Sicily in multiple varieties, during the classical period of the Ancient Greeks.
Fast forward to today and it’s incredible to see the number of Mediterranean recipes with artichoke in them! Brings that artichoke #foodfact totally full circle... right?
Growing up in our family, artichokes were always served stuffed with seasoned breadcrumbs and cheese, adding a little extra flavor to the traditional part of the artichoke petal you consume. Only the most determined of our family make it to the juiciest part of the entire artichoke, the heart — but usually, the little kids lose interest in them and the adults get to capitalize on their losses. 😋
Not only are artichokes DELICIOUS, but this Mediterranean fruit is also an absolutely beautiful flower, that grows on a long, thick stem. Crazy, huh? Who here loves artichokes as much as we do?? Tell us your favorite way to eat them.👇🏻
