How to Cook Artichokes


Before you cook artichokes, you need one or two (or as much as you like) artichokes, one bay leaf, a slice of lemon and two cloves of garlic. You will also need scissors or a sharp knife, steaming basket and a large pot for cooking so you might as well prepare it. Once you have them, here are the steps on how to cook artichokes.

So how do you eat your artichokes? Remove the petals and dip the soft part on melted butter or your choice of sauce and eat only the soft, pulpy part of the petals. Continue to do until all petals are removed. Remove the “choke” or the fuzzy part that covers the heart of the artichoke which is also the bottom part. Cut them into pieces and dip them into your sauce. You can also eat them with mayonnaise and balsamic vinegar.
