From htop: "The cardoon (Cynara cardunculus), also called the artichoke thistle, are edible. The stems are eaten after being braised in cooking liquid. Cardoon leaf stalks, which resemble like giant celery stalks, can be served steamed or braised. They have an artichoke-like flavor but are a bit bitter. The flower pistils of the cardoon flower are used as a vegetable rennet in the making of some cheeses such as the Torta del Casar and the Torta de la Serena cheeses in Spain, or the azeitão cheese in Portugal. The stems are also traditionally served battered and fried in New Orleans. This plant has many other food uses."
