Artichoke Hearts in Olive Oil
These tasty whole Italian artichoke hearts are a much loved Sicilian antipasto. Super soft and tender but crisp at the same time, they have been selected and picked one by one, by hand and placed fresh into the jar. They are preserved in locally produced Sicilian olive oil.
Ready to open and eat on their own, straight from the jar, in a sandwich or a salad, on a bruschetta or a pizza. Excellent too served as a side dish with cold meats or fish and a bottle of red wine such as our organic Chianti DOCG.
Did you know that artichokes are considered to be a Super Food?
Full of Mediterranean flavour and with just 60 calories and no fat whatsoever, they are packed with nutrients such as potassium, iron salts, copper, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, vitamin C, folate, and magnesium as well as dietary fibre. Artichokes are also the vegetable ranked highest in antioxidant levels. They are very high in a certain antioxidant known as phytonutrients in the form of cynarin and silymarin, which can aid in digestion, liver problems, gallbladder function, and cholesterol levels.
Artichokes (62%), olive oil (35%), salt, vinegar, antioxidants: citric acid & ascorbic acid.
