The Hub impulse bought a 4lb jar of artichoke hearts, brand name
CaraMia, at Sam's Club. They were about 7 bucks. They are in water, not
oil (making them a non-fat food), and are not oversalted at all. We've
been eating like kings on them...pizza, salads, sandwiches. I never knew
these suckers could be so addicting.

going back for more

you can add them to your favorite pasta sauce, puree and mix with spinach
and cheese and sour cream for a sandwich spread, pour soy sauce on 'em and
eat with rice...

Artichokes are food for the gods :-). Now SHARE some recipes!

I don't have crabs. And I don't have recipes. EAting a sandwich...slap
some on. Rolling up a hippy roll for the oven, pop some in. Sliding a
pizza in the oven, throw some on. Mixing a salad, toss away.

The jar is gone, and I'm still reaching for it's empty spot in the
fridge.

Ah hah!! Just as I suspected. They're called Eppie Rolls (Don't ask me
why) and you can usually buy them, as well as Calzones (baked, of
course), in any pizza shop in New York.

The Hub calls them Hippy rolls and believes them to be of Californian
origin. (But he's a new yorker after all). I think they are like long
thin stromboli. He likes his with sausage, sauteed bell peppers, onions,
cheese and sauce. I roll out foccacia dough very very thinly and apply
the above, very thinly, and roll tightly. I've never eaten one, only
looked.
Keep in mind he would have heard the name pronouced with a thick accent.
