For lemon anchovy sauce
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon

  Anchovy paste 1 Teaspoon
  Mayonnaise 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped fresh thyme leaves 1 Teaspoon

To make the artichokes:
1. Place the trimmed artichokes into a saucepan or stockpot large enough to hold them loosely. Add 1 inch of water to the bottom of the pot. Add the lemon slices, thyme, garlic, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
2. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 45 to 50 minutes. The artichokes are done when the bottom leaves can be pulled off with ease.
To make the sauce:
1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, and anchovy paste. Stir vigorously until the anchovy paste dissolves.
2. Add the mayonnaise, thyme, and olive oil. Stir until blended. Season with pepper to taste, and pour over the artichokes.
