This recipe originally called for artichokes. I made it for Rosh Hashana and it was such a hit, that I wanted to make it again for Sukkos, but could no longer find the canned artichokes I remembered using. The store only had canned hearts of palm in that spot, so I bought frozen artichokes. Bad move–nobody ate it, not even me! After months of checking for canned artichokes, and always seeing hearts of palm in that spot, I eventually realized that I must have accidentally used hearts of palm the first time I made the recipe. So I tried the recipe for the third time, using hearts of palm on purpose. I blended everything well, so the raw texture was like a blended potato kugel recipe. This time I got that original flavor I was searching for. I realized that the taste and texture of hearts of palm is simlar to artichokes, but a lot more mild, and that was the key to making htis recipe palatable to potato kugel fans.
