Artichokes add acidity and tender, fleshy texture to various recipes, which is why they make flavorful toppings for pizza, pasta, salads, and so much more. In addition to their fresh, buttery, and slightly tangy flavor, jarred and canned artichokes are easy and convenient. Roman artichokes with the stems still on are ideal for frying, baking, and grilling. Canned artichoke hearts can be made into a tapenade by finely chopping them and tossing with extra virgin olive oil,lemon juice, and Italian herbs like basil and parsley. Blend Sanniti, La Valle, Marinella, and other brands of artichoke with spinach, cheese, and cream for a to-die-for spinach and artichoke dip, or whip up a creamy artichoke alfredo sauce for pasta.
