Alcachofas con Jamon is a popular recipe for artichokes, one of the few vegetables available during winter and also an excellent source of fiber.
- 15-20 artichokes
- 1/2 lemon
- 300 grams jamon serrano
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Peel the artichokes. To do so, cut the top part, remove all the outer leaves and as well as the tail. Cut the artichoke in half and remove the “hairy” part that you will find in the middle with the help of a spoon. Place the peeled artichokes in a bowl of cold water and a few drops of lemon.
Boil 1 and a half liters of water with salt in a saucepan. As soon as it boils, strain the artichokes and place them in the saucepan. Boil them for about 20 minutes.
Strain the artichokes keeping some of the boiling water in a cup.
Cut the garlic cloves into very small pieces. Cut the jamón serrano into small pieces as well. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and fry the garlic for about 1 and a half minutes until it starts to get brown.
Add the jamón and mix everything together for another minute. Add the flour and stir constantly so that the flour doesn't stick to the pan.
