The ultimate way to enjoy fresh artichokes.

Ingredients

  • 4 globe artichokes
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • Chopped parsley for garnish, optional

Directions

1. Break off artichoke stems to remove tough fibers. Cut stem ends. Trim off pointed leaf tops of artichokes with scissors. Rub cut parts with lemon half.
2. Fill large pot with 2 inches water, and add bay leaf and garlic clove. Squeeze juice from lemon halves into water, and place steamer basket in pot. Set artichokes top down in steamer basket, cover, and bring water to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to medium, and steam artichokes, covered, 45 to 50 minutes, or until a bottom leaf from each base pulls away easily. Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve with a dipping sauce, if desired.
