"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

(Carciofi al Vapore con Salsa Verde)
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed
3 tablespoons chopped shallot

1 anchovy fillet
Pinch of dried crushed red pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons whipping cream
2 teaspoons Sherry wine vinegar

4 medium globe artichokes
1/2 lemon
Heat small skillet over medium heat.

Add fennel seeds and toast until aromatic and beginning to darken, about 2 minutes.

Add parsley, capers, shallot, garlic, tarragon, anchovy, and crushed red pepper to processor.

Puree until coarse paste forms, scraping down sides occasionally.

Season with salt and pepper.

Lay 1 artichoke on its side and cut off top third; cut off stem at base of artichoke.

Using scissors, cut top 1/2 inch off each remaining leaf.

Rub all cut surfaces with lemon, squeezing slightly to release juice.

Reduce heat to medium, cover, and steam artichokes until tender, adding more water if necessary, about 30 minutes.
