Jarred artichoke hearts are one of those pantry items that we keep around just for the times when we’re

in a pinch

Unlike mushy canned artichokes, we find that jarred artichokes stay fairly firm and meaty. We admit they’re not quite as fresh-tasting as frozen artichokes, but like we said, they’re great in a pinch when we need a quick weeknight meal.

These artichoke hearts can round out a frittata or top a quick pizza. We can toss them with pasta or throw them into a cold salad. Essentially, whenever we feel that our dish is one ingredient short, these artichokes step up to the plate.

Quick tip: we usually empty the jar into a strainer and rinse off the marinade before using them. Otherwise the vinegary marinade tends to overwhelm the clean flavor of the artichokes.
