What's In Season - Spring - Artichokes
I went to the shuk this Tuesday and got four artichokes, two packages of strawberries, chard, giant pink lady apples, and a bunch of flowers (among other less exciting things).
Right now I have the artichokes roasting in the oven. I've never made them in the oven before, but I used Chef John's technique for Simply Roasted Artichokes.
Garlic and loquats ('shesek' in Hebrew) are also in season.
I love this kind of flower because they don't need ANY water and they last a long time. I forget what they are called. My husband thinks they are quite ugly when I bring them home, but these opened beautifully.
