Artichokes owe their unmistakable, tangy aroma to the bitter substance cynarin. Cynarin helps to lower cholesterol levels, supports the liver in its detoxification work, and activates the flow of bile. Other artichoke ingredients have a positive effect on the eyes.

The braised artichokes are often served with a dip: simply mix some citrus basil stock with sour cream, season with salt, pepper, and a little honey.
