In Season: Artichokes

It's time for fresh artichokes, so look for piles of them to start appearing at a farmers' market (or greengrocer's) near you. From teensy babies perfect for sautéing, grilling or baking in a tomato sauce to honkin' globes that can be boiled, trimmed and the leaves dunked into a fresh garlic aioli, these are truly a seasonal delight.
