Good price for canned artichoke hearts?

thecooktoo's picture

As I've mentioned before in here, I don't do fresh artichokes unless somebody pays me a hell of a lot more than I am really worth to do them.  I buy canned or frozen artichoke hearts all the time, and Reese is one of the brands I look for.  Never have had a problem with them, always firm, flavorful and easy to use.  I've used them in soups, salads and as a side dish.


I pay retail here about$3.50 for a can of whole ones or $2.90 for a can of chopped or sliced.

Try Trader Joe's frozen artichoke hearts and you'll never look back. They are by far the best frozen I've ever had, and the price is good. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have them during the summer, but they return in early fall, or late summer maybe.

I have tried them and they are very good.  I will use them particularly if I am going to use them as a garnish on a salad or something like that.  For a cooked sauce calling for artichokes, the canned ones are less expensive.


I buy them when they are on sale and put them on my "stock" shelves in the garage (and often forget that I have them there!).

It's not good to lose track of artichoke hearts. ;-)
