Season of Artichoke!

How to Eat an Artichoke
One of the oldest-known foods, Artichokes have delighted and nourished people for several thousand years. Today, Artichokes are enjoyed in every corner of the globe...

Many people have never experienced the joy of eating an Artichoke because they never learned how to eat one. The good news is that eating an Artichoke is easy, and definitely something to be savored slowly and sumptuously.

Start by pulling off one of the outermost petals. Dip the base of the petal into your favorite sauce. Many people prefer melted butter or mayonnaise, but there is no limit to the types of dips or sauces that can be used.
Pull the petal through your slightly clenched teeth to remove the soft, tender flesh at the bottom of the petal. Discard remainder (you'll want to have an empty bowl ready in which to drop them).

Continue until all petals have been removed. You will now have arrived at one of the great culinary rewards: the Heart! If the fuzzy choke guarding the Heart hasn’t been removed, scoop it out with a spoon.

Cut the remaining Artichoke Heart into bite-sized pieces, dip and enjoy!
