Smokey Flavoured Artichoke Halves
The Artichokes are lightly steamed and then canned. In the can they are then pasteurised which completes the cooking. We repackage into the marinade and plastic pack.
From Harold McGee - The artichoke is the large flower bud of a kind of Thistle plant (Cynara Scolymus) and it is native to the Mediterranean region. It was probably developed from the Cardoon (C.Cardunculus) which has small and meager buds whose base and stem were eaten by the ancient Greeks. They are nmembers of the lettuce family and share flavour traits with salsify and sunchokes (aka Jerusalem artichokes). the edible parts are the fleshy bases of the bracts (leaves) and the heart, which is actually the base of the flower structure and the upper part of the stalk. The qualities of the Artichoke are largely determined by the copious amounts of phenolic substances. They manifest when the flesh is cut or tasted raw. Some artichoke phenols have anti-oxidant and cholesterol lowering effects, ARTICHOKES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO ACCOMPANY FINE WINES!
