Cardone is a vegetable you may have never heard of but should be added to your grocery list this winter season! Cardone, also known as Cardoon or Cardi, looks like overgrown celery but tastes like an artichoke heart (delicious!). Typical in the Italian culture, Cardone is the perfect addition to many different dishes or can be enjoyed baked or fried. Especially during the holidays, this delicacy is the perfect addition to your holiday menu! However before you bite into a stalk of Cardone, I would suggest prepping it because they have thorns and a tough spine. To prepare your Cardone, check the easy steps below!

All you need is one bunch of Cardone, a lemon and a pot of water!
Cut the sides and back ribs with caution-they can be pokey!
Cut the Cardone into pieces( size depending on your desired use).
Boil until tender.
& Voila! Can be added to different types of dishes or fried.
