    I too concur with this...A whole lot of prep and fuss for such little reward.

    I'll eat up the spinach artichoke dip though!

    Just steamed and dipped in melted butter / margarine.

    The people wo say to much work are so high. Nothing is better that a great Artichoke or better yet the work to get to the heart. :heartpump:

    No doubt brother. I had artichokes for dinner last Saturday. Getting to that meaty heart is worth it, but I find the leaves just as tasty. I could eat artichokes until I puke.

    Who was the first starving guy who looked at an artichoke and said - "I bet I could eat that!"

    I had my first one of the season for dinner last night! I swear the first one always takes WAY longer to cook than you remember!

    True. I steamed one for an hour the other day, and it was still tough. I cooked that sucker for almost 2 hours before it was soft enough to eat.

    Artichokes are a vegetable that IMO are much better boiled, braised, broiled, fried or grilled than steamed. They also taste better to me cool or at room temperature than hot. But it's probably just me.
