Frieda's Specialty Produce - Baby Green Artichokes

Overview

What are Baby Green Artichokes?

  • These baby green artichokes still have the earthy, nutty flavor of regular-sized artichokes. They are more tender and are perfect for single servings or appetizers.

How to Eat

  • Remove outer leaves to get to the pale yellow part. Trim off the green stem and about 1/4 inch off the tips. Rub cut sides with lemon, or soak the cut artichokes in lemon water.
  • Fry leaves in high heat for crispy artichokes. Braise with olive oil, garlic and herbs; include in risotto; or steam or grill for a small appetizer or side dish.
