Frost Kissed Artichokes

Freezing conditions produce a crop with a nuttier flavor profile.

Ocean Mist Farms, a grower and marketer of fresh artichokes, is now shipping Frost Kissed artichokes, which will be intermittently available throughout the winter 2021/2022 season. Once the temperature drops below 32 degrees, the artichokes’ skin darkens due to the freezing conditions, which seals in more flavor and provides a nuttier flavor profile for Ocean Mist Farms’ Frost Kissed artichokes. The brown outer layer peels off once cooked resulting in the green artichoke shoppers are familiar with, the company said.
