Mmmm - Marinated Artichokes

It's artichoke time in the Patch. All the baby artichokes are starting to form in the side branches and they are delicious when preserved in oil. While they are still young there is no choke in the middle of the flower to remove so they are quite quick to prepare. Yesterday morning I picked several and after bringing to the boil in a mix of white wine vinegar and white wine, packed them in a jar and covered with oil. I threw in a few peppercorns and bay leaf to give a bit of flavour. They last for months and months and are great to add into a salad or top a pizza.

The first few passionfruits have just set on my vine.
