Spring means artichokes

Cut the bottom off to make it flat. Cut and tops off to get rid of the prickly leaves.  Put them in a pot of water about half way up the choke.  I salt, pepper, add Italian seasoning and juice of a lemon.  Throw the lemons in too.  Simmer covered for 45 minutes or until tender.  

Remove from water, drain and serve with garlic aioli.   I like this one - no raw egg in the recipe.  Tear the leaves off, dip and nibble the meat from the tips.  Waiting in the middle is a heart.  Remove the fuzzy choke and dice the heart, dipping in aioli like the leaves.  

The End.
