Baby Artichokes are not younger versions of the adult plant, but rather it's artichokes from another part of the plant. They are more tender and smaller than the main artichoke.
I found that they were easier to peel and remove the choke. I found them quite cute! The lady at Whole Foods said that they sell quickly. I found them quite pricey, but worth the try.
I was required only to use a certain number of the baby artichokes, so now I have a few left to experiment with, maybe on Saturday. My Beloved came up with a great recipe idea, but I'll have to surprise you with that later.
Day 5: Artichokes Braised with Onions and Thyme. I am dreading this one. I HATE ONIONS. But the rules state, I must not omit them (and I have to take Thank You bites and eat them!).
