Deli cited for concealing extract (6)


I believe the answer is:


'extract' is the definition.

'deli cited for concealing' is the wordplay.
'concealing' indicates a hidden word.
'ELICIT' is hidden within 'deli cited for'.

(Other definitions for elicit that I've seen before include "Obtain" , "Get out" , "Draw out, call forth" , "Draw out from, meaning or response" , "Draw out from, invoke" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
