Oh gosh, where do I begin? This is one of the most amazing creations ever! If you’re looking for a snack with an off-the-charts ‘WOW’ factor, and a major conversation starter, here it is!! Although, I do feel a bit cheated knowing now that there has always been a way to enjoy 90% of the artichoke, instead of all that work of scraping the leaves on our teeth for a measly 40-ish% of yumminess..but oh well!
Frying these babies up turns the leaves into crispy artichoke chips, and they are completely edible! You may still get a stubborn leaf in there..but the flavor punch & crunch is beyond compare, and unlike anything you’ll ever taste. This method is such a treat, and literally turns an ordinary Artichoke into a snack that will give even the best potato chips & dip a run for their money!
I have to start by saying that through this artichoke preparation method, I learned that this vegetable is one of the most naturally beautiful creations ever! And it’s so strange, but after it’s trimmed, the center smells exactly like a fresh cut rose!
