A-Z challenge Recipes Letter A

Letter A and our first recipe is for  Artichoke

This vegetable grows to 4–6 ft tall.

If you have never eaten one you really should give it a try.

It is pretty just cook it in boiling salted water for 20 to 25 min. or until you can pierce it with a sharp fork. Drain it and set on plate to serve. Pull the leaves off stating at the bottom. You eat only the little fleshy part at the base. Some people like to dip it in melted butter. I like it dipped in real mayoniase and some restaurants serve it with garlic aioli.

Another blog I visited today also featured artichokes. I haven't had one in a long time, now I definitely want to get one for the weekend's cooking!

Thanks for visiting; I see you too are in Arizona :)

I think I have only tasted this ONCE!!! I will buy one next time I'm at Central Market and give it a try!

I have always wondered how to prepare artichokes. I love them in restaurants but never dreamed they would be so easy to fix for myself. Thanks!

Artichokes are nearly at the bottom of veggies that I will eat - I don't care for them very much.

I've never prepared them myself, but I do like them.
