This recipe couldn't be any simpler and any more special. Don't ruin the nutritional value of your artichokes by bathing them in a heavy mayonnaise or all butter sauce. The sweet, earthy flavor of the reduced apple juice with just a touch of butter is a much tastier (and healthier) dipping option.
1 cup apple juice or apple cider
1 tablespoon butter
Bring apple juice to a boil over medium heat and boil until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until butter melts. Serve with artichokes for dipping.
