At its simplest, this can be melted butter, with plenty of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Delicious variations might be a tangy vinaigrette, a rich hollandaise sauce or mayonnaise, or a light refreshing Avgolemono sauce . Braising artichokes in a niçoise or à la grecque manner is merely a variation of the simple boiling method. The whole artichoke should be prepared as above, but cooked in a pan of water with plenty of olive oil and aromatics. They can be eaten straight away, or preserved in their poaching liquor for future use.
One word of caution though: when grinding any nuts it is best to go slowly in short, quick bursts. Their high oil content means that they quickly mush down to an oily paste, rather than the light, fine crumbs you require. Recipes for sweet biscuits and cakes often call for blanched whole almonds, or halved almonds. Savoury dishes are more likely to suggest dry-roasting or frying them to bring out a deeper, toastier flavour. Middle Easterners nearly always fry almonds, turning them an appetising golden-brown, and adding a heady savoury flavour and incomparable crunchiness to any dish.
It is very hard to find green almonds in the shops, so, other than picking them straight from the tree, you will have to make do with the mature version. All supermarkets, whole-food stores and delicatessens stock almonds – mainly the blanched, prepackaged kind, which are certainly easier and more convenient to use, but you also run a greater risk of ending up with stale or occasionally rancid nuts. Around Christmas time there tends to be an abundance of the whole nuts, still in their shells. For cooking rather than nibbling, though, it is easier to buy shelled almonds, and they have a much sweeter, fresher flavour if you buy them in their papery brown skins and blanch them yourself as described below.
