Artichokes

 

With the arrival of Winter the artichoke season begins and the fields surrounding the Ebro river are famous for the quality of their production. The tradition of growing artichokes has passed on from one generation to the next, accompanied by several recipes in the Catalan gastronomy. Artichokes are rich in minerals like calcium, phosphorus and iron, they have a high concentration of A and C vitamines, therefore it is highly advisable for the cold months in order to increase the resistance to common colds. Artichokes are used for treating hepatitis, cirrosis and as general aids in body detox diets.

In CARMELITAS you may find them in our seasonal vegetables grill, our famous artichoke chips and our pasta…

In February, the “Artichoke Festival” is organized in Amposta. Here is a link for you to enjoy it:
