So funny…. I have prepared them for years! Less is better!
Easy and tasty
Ok so you don’t eat the leave just scrape them through your teeth .?
Hi Lori, the leaves are quite fibrous, even when cooked, so yes, you scrape them through your teeth.
Waiters in France place bet’s on which of the tourists will try to eat the whole leaf. The tops of the leaves are impossible to break down, so they just sit there chewing one for 5 mins
Yum. Both my husband and I tried them for the very first time. I like them as they are slow food. You have to eat them slowly, and the heart is the best for last.
Why are they so expensive
Hi, Keoni! It could be due to where you live. If you don’t live in a region where artichokes are grown and they have to be imported, then they probably cost more. Also, if artichokes are out of season, they sometimes cost more. Their main season is in the spring, and there can also be a smaller season in the fall.
Perfect recipe! simple, great step by step to invite new fans! I was raised on artichokes and believe that it was my first finger food as a baby! hooked my son on this marvel at a very tender age and we still love to share one or two whenever we are together (he’s 52). We follow the old French tried and true “dip” of a strong vinaigrette. Well done!
so easy, and so good!!!!!
Yum. Simple to follow.
Great and easy to follow recipe.thank you
Perfect with homemade lemon aoli sauce
I found mayo with lime in our store. Just the perfect dip. I’ve used ghee infused with garlic, in the past.
I use my electric steamer, and dip them in lemon garlic butter. I bought one at the store today because the other half is out of town cutting firewood, and he thinks they’re ‘too much work for too little food’. Heathen. It’s a good thing he has other redeeming qualities,
I have balsamic glaze…..mixed with mayo was excellent.
Great walk through with pictures. The bay leaf, lemon, and garlic, ooooooweeeee!!
Its a well made video and I’m enjoying the steaming method vs the boil I grew up with, but the globs of mayo completely take away the artichoke for me (personal opinion) a recommendation if you want it is simmer some garlic in a little butter as a dipping sauce to add flavor but not totally wash out the artichoke itself.
Hi Alex, everyone has their preference with artichokes, don’t they? I love a mayo and balsamic dip. My partner loves to dip the leaves in a vinaigrette. Other people I know love melted butter.
Yay!!!!! Totally made my day!!♥️
I look forward to steaming my next Artichoke.
