Serves 6 as a starter
- 6 globe artichokes
- 1.2 litres of water
- 2 teaspoons salt
- About 2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 175g butter
- Juice of ¼ lemon, freshly squeezed
Have a large saucepan of boiling water ready and add 2 teaspoon of vinegar and 2 teaspoon of salt to every 1.2 litres of water. Pop in the artichokes and bring the water back to the oil. Simmer steadily for about 25 minutes. After about 20 minutes you could try testing to see if they are done.
