Carciofi alla Calabrese da Zia Eleanora

As I leave Turin and start a pilgrimage to many Artichoke festivals which all happen in this part of the season, I need to visit a few relatives and deal with the pleasantries. Zia Eleanora; this auntie is well know within the family for her cooking so I turned up to her place with ten artichokes in hand and asked if she could show me a recipe. She said this one was just one of many artichokes recipes she has in a recipe book kept in her head which is very protective of.
