    I always cut an X into the bottom before putting them in the pot. Helps them cook a little faster.

    I don't know, but he's probably dead. I think it takes more calories to actually eat one of those than you actually get from the artichoke itself. Watching my wife worth through one is just a painful experience.

    He's probably dead because they didn't realize until at least the 4th or 5th guy that you have to take the furry **** out... the choke.

    I bet the guy who first ate one of those was named Artie, and yeah, he's probably dead. You can guess why.

    Yup. Perfection. Boiled is good, as well.

    Also, a little Karam's Garlic Sauce with some melted butter would be nice.

    I may also try a little Memphis Championship Barbecue's Magic Dust with the sauce.

    Yummy! Thanks for the reminder, Sticky!

    Not really an answer, but found this interesting general link:
    http://www.foodtimeline.org/

    Which, in turn, links to this about artichokes:

    I am bringing this thread back since it is a couple years removed and it is artichoke time again. anyone have any new good ways to cook them?

    I have always steamed them until almost done (sometime stuffed and sometimes not) dumped either balsamic vinigrette or butter and garlic on it, and then put them in the fridge for a coulple hours to cool them down, cut them in half and toss them on the grill. turns out great.

    Artichokes are a very goal oriented food.

    As for Artie:

    Do not eat the hearts, they are the worst part. Send them to me and I will properly dispose of them.

    Has anybody ever tried artichokes with bacon? I think I will try that one next.

    I usually sprinkle lemon pepper in them and then steam them. I will then dip them in buttery goodness.

    I tried to BBQ them before but I failed. I did not steam them long enough.
