    To prepare fresh artichokes for cooking, first fill a large bowl with cold water and add the juice of 1 lemon (this prevents them from discoloring). Working with 1 artichoke at a time, snap off the tough outer leaves until you reach the pale green inner leaves. Using a serrated knife, cut off the stem and trim off the thorny leaf tops. If using small artichokes, gently spread the leaves and, with a paring knife or small spoon, cut or scoop out the fuzzy choke. If using medium-size artichokes, quarter them lengthwise and cut out the chokes. Drop the artichokes into the bowl of lemon water while you trim the remaining ones.

    This pairs well with crisp, light-bodied white wines like the Al-Cantàra Occhi Di Ciumi, Sicilia from our Wine Club.

    Directions:

    If using fresh whole artichokes, trim away the tough outer leaves and remove the choke. Bring a large saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Drain the artichokes, add them to the boiling water along with the lemon half, and boil for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. (There is no need to boil frozen artichoke hearts.)

    If using salt-packed capers, soak in water to cover for 5 minutes, then drain and pat dry. If using brine-packed capers, rinse under cold running water, then drain and pat dry. Set aside.

    In a sauté pan or deep fry pan over medium-low heat, warm 2 Tbs. of the olive oil. Add the onions and sauté until softened and golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic, parsley and artichokes and cook, tossing every so often and adding a little more oil if the artichokes begin to scorch, until they are fragrant and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

    Add 2 Tbs. of the olive oil, 1 cup of the stock, the capers, lemon zest, lemon juice and basil. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until the artichokes are tender and the liquid has evaporated to a thickened and flavorful sauce, about 20 minutes. If the liquid is in danger of boiling away before the artichokes are tender, add more stock as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot or at room temperature.
