How to cook Artichokes

To clean the artichoke completely, submerge the artichoke in warm salt water for an hour to clean out all the dirt and other foreign substances.

To prepare the artichokes, cut the bottom stem from the artichokes with a knife on a cutting board. Cut off the bottom stems so it is flat and can sit upright in the pot to cook.

Remove the outer leaves of the artichoke near the bottom and dispose of the leaves. These leaves are the tough outer leaves and do not make for good eating.
