    What is Cardoon?

    The cardoon is related to the Globe artichoke. An invasive, frost-sensitive plant that needs a lot of space, the cardoon usually grows as a weed. Some say it looks a bit like celery on a bad day and has a flavor reminiscent of artichoke hearts. 

     



    Health Benefits of Cardoon

    High in sodium, cardoons are nevertheless recognized as a good source of potassium, calcium and iron. Artichoke oil, which is similar to sunflower or safflower oil, can be extracted from the seeds.

     



    Ways to Consume Cardoon


    Cardoons can be baked, braised or boiled, and it's often a good idea to blanch them for up to 30 minutes before using them. Watch-out! Beware of sneaky thistles that may be lurking on the outer stalks --  (it's best to peel the outside a bit.) Cardoons are excellent fried! Try them simmered in broth, or added to a stew. If you're a cheesemaker, the purple stamens of the cardoon flower can be used to make vegetarian rennet.
