This morning I harvested our first artichokes. One is a good size - approx 16cm diameter, and the other 2 are about 13 cm diameter. We've only ever eaten them once, a few years ago in England, we spotted them at a farmer's market and took them on a visit to my parents. Mum cooked the artichokes and Dad made the hollandaise sauce. They were a delicious treat.
I've never cooked artichokes or made hollandaise sauce before so it will be a bit of a challenge. Will post the results later.
