Hearts of Palm look like white asparagus without the tips, their texture is firm and smooth with the flavor of an artichoke. Each stalk is about 4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
Hearts of Palm
The entire heart is edible, though the more tender center core is considered more of a delicacy because of its lower fiber content. Hearts of Palm can be used in salads and in main dishes or deep-fried. Serve as a cold hors d’oeuvres with a vinaigrette sauce or hot with a plain or cheese béchamel sauce.
