If you are lucky enough to have a bumper crop of artichokes great. Otherwise, frozen or canned work well.

Directions

  1. Drop artichoke hearts into a bowl of ice water mixed with lemon juice and olive oil if using fresh (skip for frozen or canned).

  3. In a pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add onion and stir until golden. Stir in flour; cook, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Whirl mixture in a blender until smooth. Return to pan and heat through. Add whipping cream and salt and pepper to taste.
