  • Rinse artichokes well.
  • Cut tips off of leaves,with a pair of scissors, holding it by the stem
  • Cut about 1/2 inch off of the top of the artichoke with a knife.
  • Cut off stem.
  • Place in large kettle and cover with water.
  • Add a generous amount of salt. (about 2 tsp)
  • Bring to a boil, and boil for about 45 minutes or until it feels tender when you insert a sharp knife in the bottom.
  • Turn upside down and drain.
  • Serve whole with melted butter, or (my favorite) Uncle Dan's Original southern (Ranch) Dressing (it's a package mix) made with sour cream and mayonaise.
  • Eat just the tender part at the base of the leaves.
  • When leaves are gone, scrape purple and white petals from top of heart and trim bottom of stem.
  • Dip artichoke heart in melted butter or dressing.
