half a stick of unsalted butter
1 clove garlic, super finely grated
In a small saucepan, heat butter to a simmer. Simmer for about 3 minutes. A foam will develop on the top. Skim all of this off. You will be left with a deep yellow liquid. Pour into a small dish and add garlic. Garlic flavors will infuse into butter.
For Artichokes: Trim artichokes by cutting off tops with a knife and leaf spikes with clean kitchen scissors. Steam artichokes for about 40 minutes. Serve warm.
