We have a family recipe for stuffed artichokes that involves the same method of cramming breadcrumbs down in between the leaves of the artichokes and steaming or baking them until the whole thing is a big mess of delicious. Ours, however, are full of anchovies.
• Here's the recipe: Stuffed Artichokes
We told you then, and we'll say it again: We don't really like anchovies, but we love these artichokes. The anchovies are cooked until they dissolve, adding nothing more than intense flavor and saltiness to the stuffing. No fishy taste.
But if that turns you off, Clark's artichokes look amazing. They're stuffed with breadcrumbs, parmesan, fresh herbs, and capers.
