Equipment

  • Pressure Cooker

Instructions
 

  • Choose artichokes with tight compact leaves. They should be firm and feel heavy for their size.
  • Cut off the artichoke stem close to the base to allow to sit upright. Remove the small leaves at the base.
  • With a knife, cut off the top of the artichoke about 1/2 to 1 inch.
  • With a pair of kitchen scissors, snip off the tips of each leaf (optional).
  • Rinse the artichokes under cold water.
  • In a pressure cooker, add water, salt, and a lemon slice.
    (Optional: Aromatics of your choice. Here, I added a bay leave, and a garlic clove).
  • To eat the artichokes, pull off each leaf. Dip it in your choice of dips and gently bite down on the leaf while pulling it between your teeth.
  • When all the leaves have been eaten, you will be left with the heart and the choke. Use a spoon to scrape off the hairlike texture. Now, you can enjoy the heart, the best part.
  • Artichoke dipping sauce ideas:
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    1 garlic glove, minced
    or
    1/2 lemon juice
    3 tablespoons extra virgen olive oil
    Salt and pepper to taste

Notes

Serve warm or at room temperature.
