"Store-bought marinated artichokes are too expensive and are consumed faster than the time it takes to open the jar. I created this recipe with simple ingredients that are already found in the kitchen. It's delicious by itself, but feel free to experiment and even make your own artichoke salad. It's not like the real deal...it's better! Enjoy immediately or chill the marinated artichokes for at least an hour before serving."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!! I used about 3/4 tsp. each salt and pepper, and that seemed to be perfect for us. I was a bit leary of the Italian seasoning, but it really gives them good flavor. I did use the optional garlic, which is a must, IMO. Be sure to use a good extra virgin olive oil. I've been eating them straight out of the fridge, but plan to make a salad w/ them for dinner, if they last that long, lol. These would also be great on an anti-pasto platter, which is what I will do w/ them next time. I think a great twist would be to add maybe 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of crushed pepper flakes in there as well...believe me, they are wonderful as is, just thinking out loud, lol. Note that these do not taste like the jarred ones @ the store...they are different, but better! This is a definite keeper that I will make often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I am basing this review at the moment on how easy these are to make and on how gorgeous my 2 jars came out....I cant rate taste at the moment as I gave these out as Mother's Day gifts. I used 4 cans of quartered artichokes, 1 1/2 lemons, 4 tblspns of olive oil, salt and pepper, 2 tspns of Italian seasonig and 4 cloves of crushed garlic. They looked so good in the jar, just like the ones in the store. I will update my review as soon as I get the "taste" feedback I need. Thanks for a great recipe.
*5/18/12- got my first "taste" review back from my mom who raved about these artichokes. She tried them last night and said they were perfectly seasoned and tangy. At this point the artichokes have been sitting and marinating for a lil over 2 weeks. I think as they sit the will increase in flavor.*
very good... I put in a splash of white wine vinegar as I thought it needed a little kick. Will use this recipe from now on and only buy marinated in a pinch. Sam's Club has a very large jar of plain artichokes for a great price. When its time for me to open that jar I will definitely make a large marinated jar using this recipe. thanks
I added red pepper flakes for a kick.
We have enjoined this marinate so much now that we can't eat artichokes any other way! We used frozen artichokes and canola oil, garlic powder and a dash of onion powder. Just makes it faster!
Loved this! This time I'm adding a little red wine vinegar and some black and green olives to the jar. My mouth is watering just to think of it!
I made this as part of a tapas-style dinner. They're delish! I only wish I had made more because these guys are hard to share.
Love this recipe, with small changes. I usually buy largish lemons and feel that 1/2 a lemon gives a lot of tang - and this is from a lemon lover. I usually cut the artichokes smaller because I love to slather them on top of a pizza. This recipe is so much better than the jarred already marinated artichokes, IMO. Will try frozen artichokes soon.
