Fire-roasted artichoke hearts

Continue reading below

Even artichoke lovers find the prickly thistles a nuisance to pull off one leaf at a time. Many want to skip the outer leaves and get right to the heart. This makes Seggiano’s roast artichoke hearts ($18.99 for a 13.4-ounce jar), submerged in premium olive oil (the company’s main product), vinegar, and herbs, most inviting. Velvety yet firm, they taste of the grill, but they’re roasted over volcanic rock. Serve them with crusty bread or in an antipasto with cheese and meat. Your job is to open the jar. Available at Roche Bros. locations at 150 West Central St., Natick, 508-655-5540, 184 Linden St., Wellesley, 781-237-2115, and 1800 Centre St., West Roxbury, 617-469-5747, and at Pemberton Farms, 2225 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 617-491-2244.
