    For the artichokes: Add lemon to a bowl of water. Use a knife to cut the leaves from the tip to the center. Then begin to remove the exterior leaves, the hard and thick ones. When the color of the leaves becomes light green, it’s time to stop. Submerge the artichokes in the water from time to time to prevent them from browning. Now cut the artichokes in half, then in half again and you’ll be left with the heart.

    Set the hearts in the water while you continue this process with the rest of the artichokes.

    Heat the oil over medium heat in a pot. Add the bay leaves, garlic, lemon zest and peppercorns. Strain and add the artichokes. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar, salt and enough water to cover the artichokes. Once it boils, cover and cook for 20 - 30 minutes or until the artichoke hearts are tender.
