Focaccia Artichoke Paste

1 bay leaf
2 sprigs thyme
4 peppercorns
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
8 artichoke bottoms, trimmed
1 cup pitted green olives (Sicilian)
extra-virgin olive oil
1 focaccia sliced into two inch squares (sixteen squares)

In a saucepan, mix the lemon juice, salt, thyme, peppercorns, and bay leaves with two cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to boil for 15 minutes. Add the artichokes and boil for about 5 minutes or until the artichokes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain the mixture and allow to cool. Combine together the olives and artichokes and chop them together with a knife until you have a very fine paste. Now mix in the olive oil. The result will be a soft paste. Spread the paste onto the focaccia squares and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.

Serves 8
