Artichokes With Lemon Lager Sauce

Ingredients

1 gallon boiling water
1 egg
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Pinch cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons butter

Preparation

1
Trim the long stems and tough outer leaves from the artichokes. Use a pair of tongs to put the artichokes into boiling water and let cook until tender, about 35-45 minutes, depending on size.
2
Place the egg, lager, cornstarch, lemon juice and cayenne papper in a blender, cover the lid with a towel and hold down to prevent splashes. The lager will foam quite a bit.
3
Melt the butter in a heavy, 1-quart saucepan over very low heat until deep gold. The milk solids will foam up and turn brown. Skim off the browned bits and, whisking continuously, add the lemon-lager mixture.
4
Cook the sauce over low heat, whisking constantly, until it thickens. Serve warm, as a dipping sauce for the artichokes.
