Fresh Artichoke Hearts

I have recipe that asks for 15 artichoke hearts for a soup. Instead of buying whole artichokes and peeling them...etc, I was wondering if anyone sells just the hearts?

Thanks CH!!

  1. I've never seen such a product. Artichoke hearts either come canned or frozen.

    FWIW, Trader Joe's is a great source for fresh artichokes especially in smaller sizes.

    1. Use the frozen artichoke hearts, they're actually a pretty decent product. C&W frozen artichokes are pretty good. Trader Joes (as noted by wanker) is also a good source.

      1. Fresh & Easy market has jarred grilled artichoke hearts packed in a water & oil combination. I think they are excellent.

        1. 3rd TJ's frozen artichoke hearts. Have used them in recipes before. Gently defrost them in the microwave first and they work pretty well.

          Whole Foods has baby artichokes. TJ's doesn't for some reason this year.
