Gobbi e carducci fritti

(Fried "gobbi" and cardoon)

Clean the "gobbi" or cardoon taking away the harder ribs, make some pieces 6/7 centimetres long, put them in slightly sour water with lemon. Boil them in salted water, drain and dry them.
Prepare a batter with egg, salt, flour and water.

Dip the pieces of "gobbo" or cardoon in the batter and fry them in abundant oil.
