There didn't look to be too much that was edible on them and I would have no idea of how to begin to break into them
And they were too expensive to even give them a second thought anyway.
My sister had mentioned to me that she had eaten them and that they tasted pretty good.
So, when I saw a tray of them on the markdown cart at the market, I figured that for sixty cents for three of them, I could give them a try.
Thanks to the internet, I found step by step instructions on how to prepare, cook, and eat an artichoke.
I chose the steaming method for cooking them, and I must say, they didn't smell too good.
But since I was determined to try them, I didn't let the smell stop me.
All of that "hair" in them was something else too.
It was a job to get to that edible heart, but it was well worth the work.
It was suggested to dip it in butter, but I found it to be quite delectable straight from the plant itself.
Very glad they were in the clearance section, and even happier that I decided to try them!
