Artichokes

Artichokes come into season in early spring and then again in early winter. Though it may be convenient to buy them in a can, fresh artichokes are naturally savory and delicious. They're rich in fiber, vitamin C, and folate, which is essential for producing new cells. 

Try these artichoke recipes: 
• Warm Spinach-Artichoke Dip
• Goat Cheese, Artichoke, and Smoked Ham Strata
• Braised Chicken Thighs With Artichokes and Greek Olives

I love articokes, but I confess to rarely buying them because I am just so intimidated by the things.
