DescriptionBaby artichokes are young shoots of the more familiar large artichokes. They have as much green woodsy flavor as their full-grown counterparts. But they are even sweeter and more tender. As a bonus, the choke has no inedible fur, so you can eat the whole thing. Cut away a few layers of outer leaves until the leaves are all soft and tender. Then sauté, steam, or even eat them raw, drizzled with fruity olive oil.
