Recipe Name: Anginares A La Polita (artichokes With Dill Sauce) Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

1/2 Cup(s) Lemon juice, fresh
1/4 Cup(s) Flour
1 Cup(s) Water
6 Artichoke
1 Cup(s) Olive oil
1/2 Cup(s) Onion, finely chopped
1/4 Cup(s) Dill, fresh or 1 tablespoon
dried dill weed
2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
In a large, deep bowl, beat the lemon juice and flour together with a
whisk or spoon, add the water and beat to a smooth thin paste. Set
aside. With a small, sharp knife, trim 1/8 inch off the stem end of
each artichoke and peel the tough outer skin from the remaining stem.
Snap off the small bottom leaves and any bruised or discolored outer
leaves. Lay each artichoke on its side, grip it firmly, and with a
large knife slice about 1 inch off the top. Spread the top leaves
apart gently and pull out the inner core of thistle like yellow
leaves. With a long handled spoon, scrape out the hair choke inside.
Drop the artichokes into the lemon juice mixture, turning them about
to coat them evenly and let them soak while you make the sauce. Heat
the olive oil over moderate heat in a shallow enameled or stainless
steel casserole large enough to hold the artichokes comfortably. Add
the onions and cook for 5 minutes, or until they are soft and
transparent but not brown. Drain the artichoke soaking liquid into
the casserole, add the dill and salt and, stirring constantly, bring
to a boil over high heat. Lay the artichokes side by side in the
sauce and baste them thoroughly. Reduce the heat to low, cover
tightly, and simmer for 20 minutes. Then turn the artichokes over and,
basting occasionally, simmer 25 minutes longer, or until their bases
show no resistance when pierced with the pint of a small knife. Remove
from the heat and let the artichokes cool to room temperature. To
serve, arrange on a platter and spoon the sauce over them. Source:
