Ayvalik Style Artichokes in Olive Oil
(Ayvalik Uusulu Zeytinyagli Enginar - Aegean Region)
Artichoke, cut in medium size both heart and bottom, cleaned
1 cup water + half of lemon juice
Extra virgin olive oil
Leave the cleaned artichokes in the water & lemon juice mixture to prevent discoloration.
In a medium pot, place the artichokes and the water with lemon juice in it. The water should cover the artichokes. So adjust the amount of water. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt. Cover and cook the artichokes until they are tender on medium-low heat.
Let it cool down first. Then transfer to a service plate. Drizzle more olive oil and sprinkle some dill all over it. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
