Baby Artichokes Barigoule
- 24 baby artichokes, all the same size, with the stems and leaves
- 2 dried orange rinds
- 1 1/2 cups dry white wine (40 cl)
- 2 cups olive oil (50 cl)
- 1 quart chicken consommé (1 l)
- 1/2 oz. butter (15 g)
- fleur de sel
- extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon
- 3 carrots
- 2 white onions
- parsley stems
- 2 sprig thyme
- 1 rib celery, cut in two
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 leek greens
- 2 tablespoons black peppercorns
- 6 garlic cloves
- 7 ounces cured pork belly (200 g)
- 3 1/2 ounces smoked bacon (100 g)
Step 1: Aromatics
Peel, wash and cut the carrots and the white onions into round slices 1/10 inch (3 mm) thick.
Put together 2 identical bouquets garnis with the parsley stems, thyme, celery, bay, and leek greens.
Form 2 pouches of muslin to enclose the peppercorns.
Lightly crush the garlic cloves in their skin.
Cut the pork belly and bacon into large cubes.
Step 2: Artichokes
Remove the hard, dry leaves from the artichokes. Trim the stems to 1 inch from the base, and remove the hard parts of the leaves. Peel the stem like an asparagus stalk.
Remove the choke, and place the artichokes into a container of cold water acidified with ascorbic acid (1/4 teaspoons per quart - 1 g per liter). Set aside some of the leaves around the base. Keep the smallest and whitest of them, and place into the container of cold water.
