HOW TO DO ARTICHOKE HEARTS
Use the wilted Artichokes as a little older has more flavor.
Peel them back until you only get the beautiful yellowy green look. Strip the stem too and remove any brown bits.
In the pot Chef Aron has the juice and skins of about ten (10) Lemons and two (2) whole Oranges.
Cut up a handful of Fennel and add to pot.
Crush up four (4) cloves of Garlic and add.
Palm full of Peppercorns always goes well.
Two table spoons of white vinegar and two table spoons of Apple Cider, or Ginger Beer is ok.
Vegetable Oil infused with Orange of about 80 mils. and about the same in Peanut Oil (avoid using Extra virgin Olive Oil) Might add here, if you are allergic to Peanut Oil, just use a quality Veg. oil as substitute.
At this point add half a bottle of White Wine and give it all a good stir.
Probably needs Sugar to sweeten up a bit, add a small hand full to start with, and taste again.
Now it needs a few good pinches of Sea or Rock Salt.
Add all the remaining Wine from the bottle, barring one glass full, as you deserve this.
Cut up the Artichoke as per the Video.
Important to bury the Artichoke in the mix to avoid it going brown, also during cooking.
Bring all that hard work up to the boil and turn down a bit to simmer just off the boil.
Simmer for about one hour, reducing the liquid, then stand to cool and there you have it.
Artichoke Hearts and Happy Days!
