HOW TO COOK ARTICHOKES
3-4 artichokes, cut
1 tbsp additional virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Was artichokes under cold water. Cut the bottom of the stem and manage any hard leaves near the bottom of the artichoke.
Utilizing a scissor, cut off the thorny portion of each leaf. This will about 1/4 -1/ 3 of the leaf.
Utilizing a sharp knife, trim off the top of the artichoke where the leaves are firmly compacted. I like to utilize a serrated knife for this.
Place a couple of inches of water in the bottom of a big pot together with a tablespoon of additional virgin olive oil, and 1/2 a lemon. Bring to a boil, then reduce down to a simmer.
Location the artichokes in the bottom of the pot (you should have the ability to fit 3-4 artichokes depending upon the size of the artichokes and the size of your pot). Simmer for 35-45 minutes or up until the stems hurt and the thicker bottom leaves takes out quickly.
Get rid of the artichokes from the pot and once they are cool enough to deal with, lay them flat side down and cut them in half lengthwise.
Use a spoon to scoop out the choke and any difficult leaves near the center (they are not edible so you can toss them!).
Serve with fresh lemon, vinaigrette and/or some garlic aioli. Enjoy!
Cooking time may vary based upon the size of your artichokes. Ultimately, you desire the stem to be fork tender and the leaves to take out easily. Let this be your guide.
