These nutty and peppery purple artichokes from Italy are the symbol of summer days coming back on the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy them, just steamed with a nice vinaigrette, or roasted.

Tasting notes of the Curator

These big artichokes are to be eaten cooked ( in contrast with small artichokes who can be eaten raw ). The traditional way to eat them once steamed is pretty simple:

  • Discard the first row of leaves ( the hard ones )
  • Starting with the second row, you’ll find some “meat” in the inside of each leave. Dip the leaves in a nice vinaigrette and scrape it with your teeth in a succion movement.
  • Once you arrive to the heart of the artichoke, remove the “artichoke hay” to discover the best part: the artichoke heart. Slice it, dip it in the vinaigrette. Summer is here.

Cooking instructions

Steam them for 10 minutes in a pressure cooker or 15 to 20 mins in a pot until the leaves are easy to remove. For the vinaigrette, mix some vinegar or lemon, salt, pepper and mustard. One nicely mixed, add some extra virgin olive oil and lightly stir. It’s ready.

You can use the artichokes heart as well in recipes. You can pan sear them or bake them. So many possibilities!

Storage Instructions

Store in the refrigerator. Eat as soon as possible. Shelf life is 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator, sprinkled with water and sealed in plastic bag. You can freeze artichokes. You need to cook them, sprinkle them with lemon juice to prevent marketing and place them in airtight container in the freezer. They can last 10 to 12 months in the freezer.
