In support of palm hearts



Palm Hearts



My favorite food was originally a mistake. I'm so glad that the palm hearts are right next to artichoke hearts, though. And I'm glad I don't pay attention while I'm shopping.

About a year ago I got addicted. I bought them, and decided to try em out. I've made several of my friends eat them since. I will put them on salads and such, and people will think I'm normal.

What they don't know, is when I'm alone, I'll open up a can and eat them like pickles.

Imagine an artichoke heart, but without the crappy mushy texture. Instead it's cylindrical, smooth and more firm/dense, with the very inside so silky it's like a cream filling. It's delicious and addicting, not to mention fun.

I'd say 6-8 come in a can, for a total of about 3 servings and about 75 calories total. Not a lot of carbs, and it has protein and calcium. They're slightly expensive for an afternoon snack, but totally worth it at approximately $3 a can.

I love artichokes, I just am not a fan of the canned hearts anymore, unless cooked thoroughly into something. Especially the VIGO ones because they always have a bit of rough unswallowable texture, and taste like tin a bit. I should buy the more expensive ones, I'm sure they'd be good... but still, I much prefer palm hearts.

isn't there some eco-controvery about palm hearts? something about how they're harvested, leaving the rest of the plant to die?

you are the cruelest person in the world for saying this. I almost don't want to find out. But I will.
