How to store artichokes: in the fridge, in the freezer, in oil


From cleaning to cuts, from basic cooking, to tips for using artichoke scraps in simple and waste-free goodness, to more special dishes: the artichokes have been treated in every way. It is essential to know how to store artichokes: fresh, in the freezer and in oil.

Cool or in the fridge

Cut the stems of the artichokes obliquely with a cutter, put them in a jar of water and keep them cool. Or keep them in the fridge, wrapped in damp paper. They last for 2 days.

In the freezer

Blanch the artichokes in wedges for 1 ', drain and let them cool. Place them spaced on a tray, freeze them, bag them and keep them in the freezer for 2-3 months.

In oil

Bring 50% water and vinegar to the boil with pepper, salt and flavorings to taste (garlic, bay leaf, thyme, marjoram, shallot …). Boil the artichokes in wedges for 3-4 ', then drain them and let them cool. Collect the artichokes in special sterilized glass preserving jars; cover them with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, plug them. Wrap them in towels, dip them in 5 cm of water in a saucepan and boil them for 20 minutes. Check the formation of the vacuum from the hollow that is created on the cap. Eat them within 6-8 months.
