Are hearts of palm (which come in a can) raw? I love them and have been craving them like mad. I’ve been having trouble finding any real nutritional info on them, but my market does sell organic ones. I’m sure they are a bit high in sodium, like all other canned goods.
Damn! Guess i need to stop popping them open, dipping them in olive oil and s&p, and eating the entire can in one sitting…
on a healthier front, i’ve also been craving and indulging in watercress salads (usually watercress, some lemon, olive oil, s&P, and tomatoes or avocado) like a fiend lately.
Oh man I love hearts of palm! But if you think about it, it’s pretty neutral. just a cooked vegetable. I eat them by the can too! Usually I eat 2 cans. lol Though I did find them a little hard to digest. Yes, of course the ones in the can are pasteurized, and I’m not sure that they really would taste good raw.
Yes, pianissima, the jarred ones are preferable. We used to get them at Costco and I would stock up. I was proud of myself the last time we went—walked past ‘em and didn’t put them in the cart. Though now that we’re talking about it again, I really want them! I may not be as strong on my next trip to the mega warehouse.
I actually just had hearts of palm for the first time Saturday! It was in a salad at one of Nordstrom’s in-store restaurants (I was shopping). It was really good, although I thought at first they had left cheese in my salad!! That’s sort of what it tastes like… (I’m not 100% raw, but pretty damn close.)
I am looking to see if I can find raw hearts of palm and found this website: http://www.dekingofhearts.com/home.html I will have to email them and make sure that fresh really does mean raw. Would be nice!
