Anyone have a recipe for homemade Cynar?


My two artichoke plants, which produced a grand total of 1 artichoke last summer, are now over 5 feet tall and between them have 10 artichokes growing on them. My only concern is that they will choke out the tomatoes in my garden, which would be unforgivable. As it is, I'm going to try to see how much they produce this summer and then make a decision about whether to pull them or keep them. I love artichokes, but they take up about 1/2 of one of my vegetable beds.
I know that a lot of Italian amari contain artichoke leaves, but I'm not sure about how to go about it. Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to make some homemade Cynar, but I've had no luck finding a recipe.

There is a recipe for an 'Artichoke Leaf Wine' in msg 4157.
Since the Italian 'Cynar' bitters is popular and apparently healthy,
here is another recipe from an Italian site:
(http://www.erboristerie.com/utilita/contents/liquori.htm)

Artichoke Bitters (Amaro Al Carciofo)
450 ml white dry wine
450 ml brandy
20 artichoke leaves
1 yarrow top
2 cloves
Macerate ingredients in the brandy for 2 days. Add wine and macerate
for an additional 2 days. Filter and bottle. Age before drinking.

I really Diablo III itemslike artichokes, nevertheless they take up with regards to 1/2 of one of my own plant furniture.
I understand that quite a few German amari contain artichoke results in, but I'm not sureDiablo 3 Gold kaufen on how to handle it. Any person have got tips?
