I’ve been on a bender about learning to pickle and preserve some of my favourite foods. I love artichokes and I was so excited to see this easy to follow preserving recipe from http://www.milankasfinefood.com I cannot wait to give this a go and I had to share it with you, of course! 😁 A thousand BIG THANK-YOU’s to this lovely blogger, for allowing me to share!
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.
8-10 Artichokes (trimmed, washed, outer leaves removed)
