artichokes / Artischocken / carciofi

Calculate 2 big artichokes per person.

Preparation: cut the stems to 4-5 centimeters and remove the fibrous parts. Remove the dark outer leaves. Cut them just above their thickest diameter to remove the tough leaf tips. Scrape out the hay inside with a teaspoon. Bend it up a little and place in a bowl with water and lemon juice so they do not discolor.

Cook in salted boiling water, split-cut artichokes for 15 minutes, whole artichokes for 30 minutes.
