ISO Frozen Artichoke Bottoms
Has anyone seen frozen artichoke bottoms around? I haven't had any luck at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods and I need them for a Middle Eastern recipe. I bought them a few years ago, but can't remember where. I'd rather not trek to the Watertown Armenian stores without a confirmed sighting.
I have bought frozen artichoke hearts at the Trader Joe's in Newton (Washington Street). Don't know if that is any more convenience to you than Watertown.
i can only think that you hit the wrong WF or TrJ because i have bought them many many times at both places. TrJ has v good quality frozen artich hearts, which is not just the bottoms, but they are perfectly fine for any recipe that just uses bottoms. i would recomm your calling a few locations and/or asking a manager, because they do run out. otherwise, you can buy the bottoms in jars by Progresso- in supermarkets, but i prefer TJs.
I have seen frozen artichoke bottoms in Arax every time I've looked but I have never bought them because they are always loaded with ice crystals, which makes me think they were handled poorly at some point. Instead, I buy them in glass jars from Sophia's Greek Pantry in Belmont and they are very good. HTH.

I have bought canned artichoke bottoms at Russo's in Watertown and am glad to know about the other places in town to buy them.
