This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Utley Estate in Mesquite, Texas in 1988. From "Catsrecipes Y-Group"[1]



  1. Trim base of the stem then break off all dark leaves and throw them away.
  2. Scoop out the light green leaves and choke with teaspoon and discard, then rub with lemon.
  3. Clean off the bottom part with a knife.
  4. Leave in the water and lemon juice mixture to prevent discolouration.

  7. Pour ¾ cup of hot water in it then stir and put the lid on.

  9. Place artichokes in a shallow pan and fill with rice equally.
  10. Pour ¾ cup of hot water into the pan from the side then cover the lid.
  11. Cook until artichokes are fork tender over medium low heat.
  12. If necessary add little by little more hot water.
