When I saw these at market; I almost swooned. I could hardly wait to dig-in!
Soon there will be Asparagus, then Cherries, then in May we should have some Girolles.
I adore the round of seasons, and the gifts they bring. How lucky we all are.
N.B. If you are lucky enough to find young Artichokes like the ones above; don't cut off the stems and throw them away. Take off the bottom few centimetres only; when cooked, the stems are perfectly edible and delicious.
