Cardoons

I love cardoons fried, but baked with cheese and butter is also great. If you have never made these you need to string them as you do celery,put them i water with lemon, cut the ribs of cardoon into 3 inch lengths. bring a pan of water to boil remove the cardoons from the lemon water and place in the pan bring the water to boil,boil til tender about 20-30 min then drain and dry well.Butter a 13x9 pan preheat oven to 400 now arrange the cardoon pieces in your pan. dot them with butter salt and pepper, I then scatter buttered bread crumbs over the cardoons along with 1/2 cup of parmesan squeeze some lemon over the top of the cardoons. Bake 10-15 min til cheese melts Serve hot.

I did the same, Snip! I'd never heard of them either, and I live here!

Sounds great, Ma, now that we know what's cooking!

Glad I'm not the only one

Does sound great Kades Don't think I'll find cardoons in SA though. Maybe I'll try it with artichokes!

You two Snip wish I could send you some the flavor can't be discribed nothing compares artichokes won't give you the great taste. the closest would be celery Truthfully I prefer them fried but this is good too. Dawg you can get them I would think on line or ask your veggie grocer to see if he can get you some. I'd love for you both to have a try with them.

Sounds good ma! I am going to try growing some this year. I had spectacular luck with growing artichokes, so I am hoping I can grow Cardoons too!

I'll have to look for seeds. They don't grow them in SA :(
If I find some I'd have to plant before end of FEB.
