Preparation of artichoke pesto

  1. To prepare the pesto, start by cleaning the artichokes: remove the harder external leaves and the internal beard, rinse them well and place them in water acidulated with lemon juice so that they do not turn black.
  2. Boil them in boiling water or, even better, cook them in a pan with a drizzle of oil for about 10 minutes, until they are tender (you can add a little water to the pan if needed).
  3. Once cooked, salt them, then put them in a blender together with the other ingredients: pepper, the cored garlic, the remaining oil, the dried fruit and the grated cheese.
  4. Blend everything well and use it immediately for your dishes, otherwise you can store it in a sterilized glass jar, making sure to cover the surface with a layer of oil.
