Difference btw canned and frozen

Is there a difference in flavor between canned and frozen artichoke hearts??? I popped open a can to put some in my omelet and it tasted kinda gross. Is frozen any better or do I just not like artichoke? I always love stuff with artichoke so I was very surprised not to like it.

I've found that sometimes the canned ones have a metallic taste I don't much care for - and I LOVE artichokes!

OTOH sometimes the frozen ones can be tough.

I like fresh but then, I'm lucky enough to live where we can get fresh ones most of the year. I'd say, try the frozen ones and see if you like them better - at least they won't tasty too salty/tinny!

Well, I am so spoiled. I grew up eating fresh artichoke hearts and I didn't even know they came canned or frozen. OMG, they were awful! To this day I can't eat canned OR frozen. I think it has to do with the citric acid they use to keep them from turning brown. Whatever the cause, there's just nothing like a real, fresh-cooked artichoke heart.

Sorry! I'm no help

Yup..I agree on the artichoke hearts..However, I don't mind the marinated ones in the jar to add to salads and using the marinade to make a salad dressing..

I also buy the artichoke hearts in the jar. Sometimes you can find them unmarinated, and although they aren't just like fresh, they taste okay to me. I often marinate them myself in a favorite italian dressing.
