Artichoke hearts are the tender centres of the globe artichoke, which has tough petal-like leaves that are edible, in part, when cooked. (It is actually a large flower bud of a member of the thistle family.) Artichoke hearts are available fresh from the plant, or purchased in brine, either canned or in glass jars.
