    This is an old recipe from Italy. Select a few well rounded artichokes and clip off all of the leave about halfway down,
    and trim off the stem to leave the bottom flat. Mix into a large bowl, a generous amount of bread crumbs, 2 eggs, chopped parsley 2 or 3 garlic cloves and a pinch of salt & pepper to create paste like mixture. Using a spatula put a generous amount on the tip,
    pull back the leaf and push the slurry in fairly deep. When all are filled, open the center and pour in a table spoon of olive
    oil, remove the pit from a black Italian wrinkled olive and some chopped garlic, place deep down the center of the stuffed artichokes, Place them into pot or pan with about one inch of water. Cover and place in the 350° oven. Thirty minutes could make the center soft and tender. This is a family delight and prepared when fresh Artichokes are available.

    TIP: Serve and instruct family or guests to pull off each leaf and place between the teeth an scrape off the stuffing and some
    to the tender part of the leaf in one delicious stroke, do not chew the leaf. When the center is reached, pull off the hairlike center until the center prize is reached. The center core is cleaned of the hanging on fragments and taste the most delicious center. MMMmmmm.

    One of my relatives did not quite have the right idea of eating off the stuffing from the leaves. He was kissing them and
    placing them on the plate uneaten but well kissed.
