What wine goes with artichokes?

For Artichoke & Butter Lettuce Salad, try a dry rosé or brut sparkling wine. For Fettucine with Artichokes, Hazelnuts & Cream, a Sauvignon Blanc or unoaked Chardonnay fares best.

Is artichoke a fruit or vegetable?

Botanically, tomatoes and peppers are the fruit of the plant, but the tomato is considered by the public to be a vegetable. The artichoke (globe rather than Jerusalem or SunChoke) part that is eaten is botanically a flower but could also be classified as a vegetable by the way it is consumed.

Do canned artichokes need to be cooked?

Canned and frozen artichokes are readily available and ready to cook (unlike the labor- intensive fresh vegetable). Because most canned artichokes are packed in a mildly acidic saltwater solution, we rinsed and dried them before proceeding. The frozen artichokes were thawed in the microwave and drained.
