Mmmm… artichoke hearts! I love the taste of fresh, steamed artichoke hearts, but they are not exactly the easiest vegetable to deal with, so I don’t make them as often as my family would like.
I was thrilled to discover the new ready to eat non-GMO Steamed Artichoke Hearts from Melissa’s. I just open up the package and they are good to go. They taste like I prepared them fresh and are a big improvement over canned. Consequently, I’ve been enjoying artichokes a whole lot more.
