Sure ain't gonna be me without some pretty powerful marinade for that baby.
About as appealing as trying to pet a porcupine, I'd say.

weelll I dared myself -my mom bought them a while back and wasnt going to use them-shes busier than she thinks,lol, so I took that dare and pulled all of the leaves out down to the heart and tried a small leaf -it was tough and nasty -lol I SPIT IT OUT IMMEDIATLEY!!!!

Maybe the hearts of the artichoke are okay? Yes, I would imagine the leaves are pretty tough. Next time I go to the store, I will buy an artichoke and cut it all up, take the heart of it out and do some tasting.

I haven't tried artichokes raw, but wondering if maybe taking the artichoke heart and adding it to a few other raw veggies and putting it all into the blender for a raw soup or a dip might work?
I'll have to give this a try. . .

yeah, or what about marinating them for long time in oil/vinegar/spice marinade? like in the jars, without the cooking. i do so love artichokes. i just find it hard to believe that a loving God would make artichokes so darned yummy if they were not meant to be eaten somehow :confused:

Well, I went out and bought an artichoke. I cut off the leaves, scraped out the choke and then cut the heart in two. One half is marinating in some olive oil and salt. The other half I threw in the food processor and made a carrot, avocado dip with a little parsley thrown in. You could barely taste the artichoke, but it was good.
So, it is edible raw! It was a lot of work though, just to get a little bit of edible raw! Once the other half has hopefully softened a little from the oil, I will get back and report.
