How To Cook An Artichoke

All you need to know about: How To Cook An Artichoke.

Step 1: Preparing the Artichoke

Start by preparing the artichoke. Rinse the artichoke in cold water to remove any dirt and debris. Cut off the top of the artichoke with a sharp knife, and then cut off the stem so it’s flush with the base. Peel off the tough outer leaves from the base. Using a pair of kitchen shears, snip off the spiky tips of all the remaining leaves.

Step 2: Boiling the Artichoke

Fill a large pot with enough water to cover the artichoke and bring it to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the boiling water. Place the artichoke in the pot and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the leaves are tender.

Step 3: Serving the Artichoke

Once the artichoke is cooked, remove it from the pot and let it cool. Serve the artichoke with melted butter or mayonnaise and a squeeze of lemon. Enjoy!
