My local pork store (A+S--which is a branch of the one
in Bklyn, if I'm not mistaken) has what they call long-
stem artichokes, which indeed have long stems, as well
as a narrow, smaller bulb/bud (or whatever that part
is called). They are incredibly flavorful--the
experience is kind of like drinking good wine: the
flavor grows and changes in your mouth as you chew and
swallow. After eating just one, I became totally
addicted and want more more more. The A+S guys say
they've got the only such artichokes in the Western
Hemisphere, which I tend to doubt. Have any of you
seen them in stores?
