Sardinian artichokes in oil

Posted on 08/06/2015, in: Cook

This recipe for Sardinian artichokes in oil is a good way for preserving these little prickly artichokes.
The artichoke plants were given to me, a few years ago, by a friend from Sardinia. I planted them in my vegetable garden but they’ve grown a bit less than I hoped. Fortunately the strong flavour and the delicate aroma of their heads has remained unchanged.
When I went to pick them, I found I had little artichokes, delicious and tender, and I though it would be a good idea to preserve them in oil to increase their flavour even more. Here’s how I did it, try it out yourselves!

The spicy flavour of garden cress creates a perfect mix with pasta, in fact this recipe was thought of to be used with it but, believe me, the result is wonderful with rice too.
Sow this plant in your vegetable garden… in very short time it’ll give you an abundant harvest and you'll be able to prepare this pesto, which is mouth-watering!
