Artichokes are the premature buds of a plant from the thistle family. They have strong protective leaves around the wiry choke which contains the tender edible heart of the plant. Our Vigo Marinated Artichokes have made it effortless to enjoy this delicious Mediterranean specialty. We have taken luscious quartered artichoke hearts and marinated them in a combination of oil, vinegar and spices. Vigo Marinated Artichokes are a tasty addition to ordinary salads, omelets, pasta dishes, grilled meats, or antipasto trays.
