Huge artichokes


Some massive artichokes

Now this vegetable here, the common artichike, may not seem so strange to most readers but I figured I’d give a change of perspective.  This is one of those things that we ten to take as normal, but many Asians would look at this with curiousity and intrigue.  A bit similar to cheese which, although many of us think of it is as one of the base products of our diet, there are a lot of Asians that look at it with disgust.  Ewww…gross!

I love fresh artichokes, but they are on vegetable that are very hard to find in most of Asia.  Harvested in only a few parts of the world (mostly Europe), it would be too hard to transport them over here.  I guess I’ll just have to settle for the canned hearts, but that doesn’t give the whole effect of eating an artichoke.
