Artichoke Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Artichoke Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals. Root vegetables, however, should be slowly braised or boiled for in order to ensure their inside is cooked as well as their outside.
