Perinaldo Artichoke /slow food/ Liguria

Some things are just better when they are preserved, in this case artichokes under oil. Perinaldo is a small village in western Liguria, known for its olives and violet artichoke. The artichoke of Perinaldo is violet, spineless and without beards inside and is so tender you can eat it raw. It grows at 400/600 meters and stands up well to the harsh climate and winter drought and so it’s pretty tough.  It needs no chemical treatment and so it is an organic product and harvested in May and June.
