How to make it

  • For cooking artichokes
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon cut in half
  • Special equipment: a melon-ball cutter; a wide 4- to 6-quart heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid
  • Make stuffing: baking bread crumbs and nuts and chopping all the ingredients can be made the day before - then all that is left -day of cooking is puting it altogether stuff and steam.-do not mix the stuffing till just before stuffing artichokes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spread breadcrumbs in a shallow baking pan and bake in middle of oven until pale golden, with the pignoli nuts until lightly browned. Cool crumbs completely,
  • then toss with all the stuffing ingredients including the wine soaked raisins ,
  • and if using, salt, and pepper.
  • Drizzle oil to moisten over the stuffing mixture and toss to coat evenly.( should be moist )
  • Trim and stuff artichokes:
  • Cut off artichoke stems and discard. Cut off top 1/2 inch of 1 artichoke with a serrated knife, then cut about 1/2 inch off all remaining leaf tips with kitchen shears.
  • Separate leaves slightly with your thumbs and pull out purple leaves from center and enough yellow leaves to expose fuzzy choke. Scoop out choke with melon-ball cutter, and then squeeze some lemon juice into cavity.
  • Trim remaining artichokes in same manner.
  • Spread leaves wide and Spoon about 2 tablespoons stuffing into cavity of each artichoke and, starting with bottom leaves and spreading leaves open as much as possible without breaking, spoon a rounded 1/2 teaspoon stuffing inside each leaf.
  • Cook artichokes:
  • Put water, wine, oil, onion, garlic, lemon salt, and pepper in pot Bring water half way up artichokes , use a pot the chokes just about fit in - simmer artichokes covered, until leaves are tender, about 30 to 50 minutes. depending on how tough they are .
