Tips

  • How long do artichokes last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep artichokes refrigerated.
  • To maximize the shelf life of artichokes, sprinkle artichokes with a little water and seal in a plastic bag before refrigerating.
  • How long do artichokes last in the fridge? Properly stored, artichokes will last for 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator.
  • Can you freeze artichokes? Yes, to freeze: (1) Wash and cook artichokes; (2) Sprinkle cooked artichokes with a small amount of lemon juice to prevent darkening; (3) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags and freeze.
  • How long do artichokes last in the freezer? Properly stored, artichokes will maintain best quality in the freezer for about 10 to 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only – artichokes that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How to tell if artichokes are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the artichokes: discard any artichokes that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the artichokes.
