Author Notes: This is a recipe inspired by necessity to come up with an impressive yet simple first course for a last minute dinner party using ingredients I had on hand. I had torn the picture out of a magazine in the doctor's office but not the recipe so this is what I came up with. A beautiful start to a summer dinner. foodfanatic

  • 8-12 canned artichoke hearts
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed

  • 4 teaspoons warm water
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taster
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate seeds

  2. Melt the butter until very hot and foamy, but not browned.
