Marinates artichoke oil

iheartcooking Mar 29, 2011 03:20 PM

Lately I've had an addiction to marinated artichoke hearts. I'm not sure how they rank among doodies but I'm guessing pretty low. My mom used to give em to me as a snack when I was little. Yesterday I bought the huge jar from Costco, Hoping to make myself sick of em. Been putting them in pasta Nd salads but mostly eating one or two as a snack.

So I'm going to have a LOT of the marinating oil left over and was wondering if it is worth using in some other application.

On a side note have you ever noticed that no matter the brand, the jars are always already leaking?

    That marinade is GREAT for topping pasta. Use it with some good quality EVOO, some grated cheese, a turn of the peppermill, and you've got yourself some good eating my friend. I used this marinade along with wheat linguine mixed with sautéed Roma beans oreganata. Unbelievable taste combination.

      I have a recipe that calls for baby new or red potatoes (cut in 1/2 if big) put in a
      9 X 13 pyrex dish along with a good handul of peeled garlic cloves and 2 small jars of marinated art hearts along with the marinade & a little drizzle of evoo. Salt & lots of pepper (even some crushed red). Toss all together & cover with foil & bake for about 20 minutes--remove foil and continue cooking until potatoes are tender.

        You can make pasta or a grain salad and use it in that. Actually you can dump some of that marinade into a jar and tinker with it to make your own dressing. I think it needs help. You might like the dressing over some warm white beans or a salad.

        I always wipe the lid down. Oil seems to hide in there.
