Surprisingly al dente and crunchy to the bite, these artichokes are peeled by hand to the core, then simply blanched in acidulated, salted water and left to marinate in extra virgin olive oil. Serve as an accompaniment to salumi platters, grilled or boiled meats, or simply with crusty toasts for aperitif and antipasti. Ideal to use as a pizza topping, in a salad or just out of the jar with a spoon.
About the Producer:
Since the 1800s, one of the largest farms in Lucana Valley of Basilicata, Italy has been owned by the Mirogallo family, who specializes in the cultivation and preservation of heirloom varieties of fruit and vegetables from which they hand-make very high quality pantry products. The Mirogallo brothers are quick to point out that everything they put in a jar comes from their fields, and that the only preservatives they use are vinegar and salt. Every summer, the Mirogallo farm is bustling with many farm-workers hand harvesting perfectly sun-ripe fruit and vegetables. Inside the old white washed farm building, a state-of-the-art kitchen transforms the bounty of every day into a wide array of jars of all color and sizes.
