Fresh Artichokes!
First off, THANK YOU to Reza for the fresh artichokes from the garden, and to Tom and his family over at KitchenGardenJapan.blogspot, a blog I follow, for the inspiration and recipe that I started with.
I used; olive oil, lemon slices, shiso leaves, fresh basil, fresh mint, fresh apple-mint, cheap white wine, fleur de sel, minced garlic, and fresh Italian parsley to stuffed the artichokes and cooked them in the pressure cooker. I think they came out very tasty and our daughter clearly showed her Paisano side and tore through a plateful herself!
