French Pickled Artichokes: fridge pickled with lots of citrus and herbs
If you like marinated artichokes in a jar, you'll love these - and they're less expensive, too, when you start with frozen or canned artichoke hearts. Make them once, then customize the spices the way you like them.
Spring is high artichoke season, and unless you live on the California coast, you need to preserve some now to enjoy later. This method of pickling keeps the artichokes nice and firm.
I don't think I can ever go back to eating artichokes any other way. These are incredibly bright and refreshing.
