Birds Eye has a good frozen product it has a gold band on the packaging.
A bit pricey around $2.50 for a small package but all things considered it may be worth it. I’ve never tryed canned but do like them out of the jar also. Chow Jim
I find frozen artichokes in the supermarket, but I’ll also use canned and fresh, especially in a sauce I make for linguine.
My Kroger has frozen artichokes. They are Kroger’s Private Selection brand. I have not tried them, so I cannot tell you if they are worth badgering for. But Kroger does have them.
Unfortunately, we are somewhat limited in choice of grocery stores. We have Kroger, Brookshires, Walmart, and a smattering of small independents. Alas, no Trader Joe.
I’ll continue my search and report back if I am able to find any so I can do a taste-test.
I buy the frozen at Trader Joe’s too. They are half the price of the frozen at a regular grocery store.
I’ll agree…I use the jarred ones as much as canned,depending on the recipe….I like both depending on the intended use…..I’ll look for those frozen ones.Thanks for the tip!
I prefer the jarred (with the oil blend) to the canned or the frozen, I just rinse them well.
The liquid in the canned ones make them taste awful no matter how much I rinse.
The frozen are too tough to me.
Trader Joe carries frozen artichoke hearts and I buy them but have never bought the canned ones, except those that are marinated in oil for appetizer use.
I have a feeling the frozen ones have a better texture than canned ones….just a guess on my part.
Used canned a lot.They’re great in pasta recipes and on pizza…(there’s one for you davydd!) Have never even looked for frozen. I too would be curious about the difference!!!
I sometimes see recipes that call for frozen artichoke hearts. I have never been able to find the frozen ones in any of the grocery stores here. I substitute canned ones and the results are generally good, but I know there is a great difference in other canned vs frozen vegetables.
How are the frozen ones different? Would it be worth while to badger the grocery manager to get them?
