DIRECTIONS

  • Trim artichoke (Starting at the bottom, grasp leaves, bending backwards and snap off) up about 1 inch up from base.
  • Snip sharp points off remaining leaves.
  • Use Serrated knife to take off top- giving artichoke a"flat top".
  • Trim stem off at the bottom.
  • After trimming, place artichokes in acidulated water.
  • Steam artichokes with lemon juice and water (I use about 4 lemons juiced) for 20 minutes.
  • While chokes are steaming, mix bread crumbs, cheese, basil, garlic and 1/2 cup of the olive oil.
  • Remove'chokes from steamer, turning upside down to drain Using a towel grab choke and with"flat top" side down press down smartly on the counter to"open up" choke.
  • Then take bread crumb mixture and stuff between the leaves.
  • Place chokes in heavy pot,stem side down, adding about 1/2 cup of bread crumb mixture to the bottom of the pot Add 2 inches of water Pour olive oil over each choke.
  • Cover and steam over low or bake at 325 oven for 45 minutes, until leaves come out easily.
  • After removing chokes to serve, reduce remaining liquid slightly- the bread crumbs will make it thicken.
  • Drizzle sauce over chokes.
