Arichokes, anybody?

If someone said they come hanging on huge trees, I would believe it. If someone said they are growing deep in the soil, I would believe it too.
I like the taste, but I have no idea how to cook them. And there was that deal, 6 for 99c, so I decided to take a risk. All the online recipes I found are mostly for huge ones, not baby artichokes.

Anyways, I tried to search a bit for info on how it looks like in its environment and found a nice blue flower of it. So they bloom when they are not eaten, nice.

The link to it is huge, oh well…

Update: they were rough from outside but tender at heart. Just like most of us.
