A big beautiful edible thistle!

A big beautiful edible thistle!

I just love these plants – gorgeous leaves, fill the space, stunning flowers and then those wonderful edible buds. Lightly steamed, peeling off the leaflets and dipping the base of each in melted butter with a little ground black pepper and nibbling at the tender section, working your way in to the heart of the flower bud and finishing with a couple of mouthfuls of the absolute centre with its particular delicate flavour. I reckon exquisite; my daughter says what a lot of effort for so little return! Artichokes – love them – or not!
