    Default Artichokes!!

    They're in season again. Went to Food 4 Less and picked up 4 beauties.

    How do you prepare yours? I just steam mine until the leaves are tender, and then I dip them in a little olive oil/garlic/balsamic.

    My wife is from back east, and they stuff the crap out of them with whole garlic cloves and boil them in olive oil and garlic. I was repulsed for a long time, but have to say I rather like them now like that.

    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!

    I suck at cooking artichokes, they always end up watery. Any help would be appreciated

    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!

    Steam them until they are almost done (still need to be slightly firm). Baste them with melted butter & garlic, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder. Put on the BBQ for a few minutes (on each side) until the leaves are crispy on the edges.

    Very tasty.

    If you ever get to the central coast go to the Hitchin Post in Casmalia and order the artichoke appetizer. Very good.

    I'm gonna try that! I think I'll chop them in half before throwing them on the grill.
