Stuffed Artichokes alla Siciliana

A poor recipe, but rich in taste. Few and simple ingredients to prepare these caskets full of flavour. Artichokes are stuffed with a mix of flavoured breadcrumbs and (optionally) cheese and then cooked in a pot, stewed, without tomatoes.

Steps

1
Done

Clean Artichokes, Cut the tops of artichoke, and the bottom stem flat so artichoke will stand, cut leave tips with scissors, cutting evenly will improve final presentation.

2
Done

Rub Artichokes with Lemon, two methods for opening the artichoke so you have area to fill...one method is turning upside down, placing on hard surface, and pressing down...alternative method is just giving them a loving squeeze with both hands to loosen, and open.

3
Done

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mash anchovies with a fork, add all other ingredients and mix well. Add cracked pepper, and drizzle a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and mix well.

4
Done

Open the leaves, and generously fill in between leaves with the mixture.

5
Done

Now it the time to place the cubes of cheese on random open areas of the artichoke, I personally feel the more the better, but like many recipes, to your own taste is always suggested.

6
Done

In a large Dutch Oven, or Stock Pot, Place them together tightly so they support each other staying upright (here you will be very happy with yourself if you have cut the bottoms perfectly flat for stability)

7
Done

Fill the pot with 2 to 3 inches of lemon water, while water is warming top each artichoke with remaining Pecorino Cheese, generously drizzle Olive Oil on tops.

8
Done

When water reaches a medium simmer, tightly cover pot, and steam for 1.25 Hours, or until artichokes are tender enough to easily pull out a leaf.

The recipes need to be more user friendly. I tried to print it and it included alot of excess labels, headings, comments, etc. It would be nice to include a “printer friendly” option so it’s easier to try your recipes.
