Artichokes To Boil In Winter

Boil your artichokes for half a day in salt and water; put them into a

pot of boiling water, allowing them to continue boiling until you can

just draw off the leaves from the bottom; cut them very clean and

smooth, and put them into the pot with cloves, mace, salt, pepper, two

bay-leaves, and as much vinegar as will cover them. Pour melted butter

over to cover them about an inch thick; tie and keep them close down for

use, with a piece of butter to plump them. You may use these for what

you like.
