Well i had forgotten about them really and it looks as though there is quite a crop. Anyone got any favourite recipes for them  ?

Depending on the size, Just washing them or peel them.
Roasting them brings out the flavour especially when you dont peel them.  I have also tried frying them in butter with smokey bacon, onions, mushrooms which is a cholesterol boosting treat.

They are not called fartichokes for nothing though.  :roflanim:
If you cant beat 'em then at least bugger 'em about a bit. :innocent:

Delicious sliced with potatoes and baked in a light cheese sauce.  Yum!  They are also nice sliced wafer thin raw in salads - not that it's the weather for salad.
(and Q - if you cook them with a pinch of asafoetida it helps with the erm...issues!)
