About

Many farmers have a passion for one particular crop that surpasses rational consideration: for Guy it’s globe artichokes. They have a magnificent towering sculptural form in the field, a rich, meaty flavour – and you don’t have to bend to pick them! Relish these treats slowly, leaf by leaf, or cut out and braise their delicate hearts.

I never had a whole artichoke before, but now I can't get enough of them
- Mario, Riverford customer

How to prepare

Boil whole in salted water with some lemon juice, then relish leaf by leaf with melted butter, mayonnaise or vinaigrette, until the meaty heart is revealed.

You can also roast their hearts to golden succulence alongside new potatoes. Or braise them and eat with broad beans and mint for the ultimate seasonal dish. Guy lovingly preserves the hearts in jars of olive oil to see him through the rest of the year…

Storage

Keep for up to a week in the bottom of the fridge.
