Directions

  1. trim the tops off the artichokes, working around and around to retain the shape. halve the lemons, juice them, and cover with cold water. soak the artichokes in this lemon water until ready to use, then drain dry.
  2. hold the artichokes by the stems and bang them a little against the countertop to open the leaves.
  3. combine the 1/2 cup olive oil, parsley, basil, salt, pepper, and garlic and sprinkle the mixture between the leaves. roll each artichoke in the matzah meal.
  4. in a dutch oven or other heavy frying pan with a cover, pour about 1/8 inches of olive oil. place the artichokes, trimmed edges down, and simmer, slowly, covered, 20-25 minutes.
