The globe artichoke (Cynara cardunculus var. scolymus), also known by the names French artichoke and green artichoke in the U.S., is a variety of a species of thistle cultivated as a food.. The edible portion of the plant consists of the flower buds before the flowers come into bloom. The budding artichoke flower-head is a cluster of many budding small flowers (an inflorescence), together with Family: Asteraceae.   The key to enjoying artichokes raw, says cookbook author and "New York Times" food writer Mark Bittman, is to get the freshest artichokes available. If possible, ones that have been just picked are best. Bittman advises that one way to determine an artichoke's freshness is to squeeze it -- a fresh artichoke will make a squeaky sound when squeezed.

Eating Artichokes in Rome A Guide to Roman Artichokes. Anyone visiting Rome between Christmas and Easter would be a fool not to eat some local artichokes. Whether you opt for them fried, braised, tossed with pasta or raw in a salad, artichokes are one of the highlights of this period of the year and a sure sign that spring is on its way.   Artichokes are thistles, which is a family of flowering plants characterized by prickly leaves. Although they’re typically cooked whole, only parts of the artichoke are edible. The outside of the bulb features dark green leaves, which are stringy, fibrous, and not meant to be eaten.

  Artichokes are packed with essential nutrients, especially fiber. Artichokes are carb-rich vegetables and provide about grams of total carbs in each medium-sized artichoke, according to the USDA. The majority of carbs in artichokes are from dietary fiber – there are about grams of fiber in each medium-sized portion.5/5(6).   There are some pretty artichoke plates intended just for this purpose with a little well in the middle to hold the artichoke, and a surrounding circle for the leaves to be discarded. Serve the artichokes with melted butter mixed with some lemon juice, mayonnaise (flavored or plain) or another dipping sauce. Eating the artichokes: Eating the Leaves.
