Artichokes have an earthy, mild-nutty flavor flavor with herbaceous notes.
The petals of the artichoke have a crunchy texture while the heart is much softer and has a more intense flavor.
When eaten raw, artichokes retain a much firmer texture and a bitter taste. Cooking softens the texture; you can grill, pan-fried or boil them, or enjoy them raw.
Country of Origin: Italy
Storage: they should be refrigerated in a vegetable bag and used as quickly as possible. Cooked artichokes can be kept in the refrigerator for several days.
Food Pairing: the sweet and slightly wild taste of lamb well lends itself to a marriage with artichoke hearts. So do other animal proteins, such as chicken or eggs.
Weight: 1 piece in total (approx. 180g per one artichoke)
