These artichokes are a little sweeter than the natural because of the grill. And, their secret ingredient is peppermint leaf, which you can barely detect, but offers a wonderfully subtle well-roundedness.
De Carlo's Whole Grilled Artichokes are not your typical jarred artichoke! Yes, they cost more. But once you try them you will understand why; I bet you will never buy the marinated artichokes in the small jar from your traditional grocer again. These are that good! First the jar is packed (packed!) with firm and tasty artichokes grown with De Carlo's olive groves. Then the jar is filled with their extra virgin olive oil which you should reuse.
I like them thinly sliced (you can sauté the slices for even more texture and love) and tossed in pasta, but you can also quarter them and enjoy on their own. Perfect for use on pizza, sandwiches, starters or to accompany meat or fish. This distinctive fresh artichoke also makes it suitable for use in risotto, pasta and pasta sauces, or even fried like fresh artichokes. Firm and flavorful. Don't forget to save the oil! The "Violetto di Brindisi" is a typical artichoke from Puglia. Its name derives from its purple leaves.
Typical side-dish of the Apulian table and an authentic expression of peasant tradition. De Carlo's vegetable preserves are packed within 24 hours of vegetable picking in their own extra virgin olive oil and produced with a very low percentage of vinegar.
Ingredients: 70% baby artichokes, 28% De Carlo extra virgin olive oil, garlic, peppermint leaf, salt and white wine vinegar.
Weight: 200 g / 7.14 oz (approx 10 jar)
