For my 100th recipe post I would like to share with you a simple pickled Artichoke recipe.  If you have never eaten or cooked this vegetable do not be alarmed by it’s exotic appearance.  It can be prepared in a number of different ways, on this occasion I will simply pickle and preserve them.  Artichokes were enjoyed by the ancient Romans, Greeks and throughout the Mediterranean as well as the Arab cultures and North African. They  have a dramatic flower like appearance however, prepared in traditional Italian marinated style they evoke magnificent flavours and textures.  A friend was kind enough to share with me a large number of Artichokes from her sister’s garden.  How could I refuse fresh Artichokes lovingly grown in a home garden! I hope that you enjoy this  simple healthy recipe using this magnificent fresh vegetable which contains the highest level of antioxidants for vegetables.
