Basic recipe on how to cook artichokes.



  1. Cut off artichoke stem and head.
  2. Remove base leaves and cut off pointy end of upper leaves.
  3. Rub artichoke in lemon to preserve color.
  4. Add salt (and any seasonings) to 3 inches of water, bring to low boil.
  5. Place artichoke top down in pot tall enough to place lid without touching the artichoke.
  6. Boil on low 30-45 minutes until bottom can be punctured without resistance.
  7. Place artichoke upside down to drain.
  8. Serve whole, with one or more dips. Diners should remove a leaf, dip the base of the leaf in the dip, and eat the fleshy base of the leaf.
  9. When all the leaves are gone, remove the choke, cut the heart of the artichoke into bite sized pieces, and serve with the dip.


  1. Parsley
  2. 1-2 Garlic per artichoke
  3. Pepper
  4. 1/8 cup white wine.

Simple Dips

This dip is in our opinion more tasty than butter or mayonnaise:

  • 1/2 cup of Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
