What You Will Need to Make a Perfect Artichoke:

  • Fresh Artichokes
  • Water
  • Large Pot
  • Steamer Basket
  • Knife

How to Make a Perfect Artichoke:

  1. Rinse Artichokes well. I like to make sure water really gets inside the artichoke.
  2. Cut off the stem of the Artichoke. This will help ensure the Artichoke stands upright when cooking.
  3. Place steamer basket in a large pot.
  4. Add water to just under the steamer basket. Don’t fill water over the steamer basket or it will delay cooking.
  5. Get the water to a boiling then reduce heat to medium.
  6. Cook 45 minutes.
  7. Enjoy your perfectly cooked Artichokes. (I like to dip my leaves in mayonnaise)
