Artichokes, Size: Large

Sprouts (a grocery store native to Phoenix, a great competitor for Whole Foods) carries the best produce for the price. I love going into the store. My eyes nearly popped out of my head today. They had huge artichokes, $3 for 2 chokes. I couldn’t believe their size. So I grabbed a head of cabbage and plopped it among the leaves. Artichoke hearts are fine, but I favor the leaves dipped in drawn butter with lemon and pepper
