Carciofi Dorati E Fritti To quote the author, "The reason why these fried
artichokes are called dorati (golden) is that they are dipped in beaten
eggs before frying...eggs from chickens raised on farms have yolks of a
much richer color than the eggs on finds in the market today, and food
dipped in eggs acquire a golden color...The best artichokes for this dish
are the very best fresh and tender ones which have no choke at all and
require only a very short cooking time." Prepare artichokes as directed in
"How to clean artichokes - Jewish styles"."Cut in half lengthwise and cut
each half into 3 wedges,; keep them in this acidulated water (lemon water)
for no longer than 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Dredge
with flour and shake to remove excess. Beat the eggs yolks together. Heat
the oil in a small frying pan. Dip artichokes in beaten egg and fry, a few
at a time, in moderately hot oil till lightly browned on all sides.
Sprinkle with salt, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve immediately.
