For more “bang for your buck,” opt to purchase an Ocean Mist Farms fresh, “Long-Stem” Artichoke. Don’t be intimidated by these unique vegetables. Long-Stem artichokes can be used the same way a regular artichoke, but provide an additional 8 to 10 inches of stem that is an extension of the heart inside.
Long-Stem artichokes are also as much a visual delight as they are a tasty treat. In fact, these beautiful artichokes are an Ocean Mist Farms specialty. The company’s expert harvesters take pride in searching for the “king,” or largest chokes that grow at the top and center of the huge artichoke plant.
You can also cut the stem into pieces or bite-size coins and can cook them the same way you would cook with artichoke hearts. You can even grill the stems on an indoor or outdoor grill or use them in stir-fry, salads and stews! Remember, these stems are not only tender and delicious, but they are full of fiber, antioxidants and low in calories.
