Artichokes
« on: November 15, 2013, 10:02:10 AM »
Got some baby artichokes, trimmed them nicely into hearts, halved them, and put them on my pizza.  They were pretty good, but a bit bland.  These were fresh artichokes because my first experience with marinated bottled artichokes was not good.  Anybody have a favorite way of prepping fresh artichoke hearts before putting on as a topping?  Anybody prefer plain artichokes without prepping?  Right now I was not wowed by the naked artichokes.   Mark

I don't use them often on pizza, but I usually trim them, grill them first with evoo, lemon juice, and a bit of s&p. I give them a good bit of evoo after grilling to keep them from drying out before using.
Pizza is not bread.

Thanks Craig.  I think they could use a little flavor kick with some salt. pepper and evo.  Grilling veggies always helps too!  Mark

Grilled, with EVOO, S&P, and fresh lemon juice before and after. Fresh lemon juice makes all the difference.

Cheers

I love them together with mushrooms, salami and gorgonzola.
I buy them canned here in Holland, but the quality is not always good, you must have a good brand that has quality artichokes and they must be sour or acid for better taste.
