Artichokes

How to cook them: For about four artichokes, put them in a large pot with about 4-6 quarts of water. Add 1/4 oil (I like olive oil.) 2 tab. lemon juice and 1 tea spoon of salt. Simmer for 40 minutes. Remove from the water with tongs. Their color will have changed from a medium green to a light green.

How to eat them: Pluck the leaves off one at a time and dip the wider part in mayonnaise. Put the part you have put mayo on in your mouth and scrape the "meat" off with your teeth as you pull it out of your mouth.


Once you get the leaves off, peel the fuzzy core off the heart. Throw the fuzzy core away. Cut the heart into pieces, dip in the mayo and enjoy. This is the best part.
