When it is ready, the petals are peeled off and dipped in a vinaigrette. Only the lower, fleshy part of the leaf is consumed. The slightly nutty taste is absolutely delicious! In addition, the artichoke is considered to be one of the so-called superfoods. It is said to stimulate your appetite and digestion and lower cholesterol and blood lipids.
