Artichokes with Light Lemon Dipping Sauce
Artichokes are perhaps the most sensuous of vegetables - always eaten with the fingers. Cooking them with lemon slices preserves their color.
(Greek style is best)
fresh lemon juice
organic unfiltered apple juice
In a medium bow, whisk together all the sauce ingredients.
Let sit at room temperature.
Trim the bases of the artichokes so that they stand upright.
Using kitchen shears, clip the points from the artichoke leaves.
Bring a pot of water to boil; add the artichokes and lemon.
Boil, Uncovered, until tender, about 25 minutes.
To serve, center each artichoke on a small plate. Spoon the sauce onto its cavity or into a small bowl for dipping.
