Artichoke How to Cook and Eat It

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 45 mins

We have always had this but my daughter-in-laws, both fine women who I love, had never SEEN such a thing and asked WHAT do you do with such a thing and WHY?...'cause it's good and the guys like it!


  1. Cover artichoke with water and cook about 45 minutes until fork pierces through stem and leaf pulls off easily.
  2. Remove to a plate. Dip leaves in Miracle Whip, and pull leaf through clamped teeth.
  3. Don't eat the choke which is the prickly part in the center of the artichoke, and around the heart which is the best part of the artichoke. It just peels away, and yes you can eat the stem it's good too.
  4. Some people dip the leaves in melted butter but that's not how we did it.

I wanted to try my hand at making artichokes for my friend and I to try. This recipe was just what I was looking for! Thanks for the recipe. Now I can make them anytime! I didn't dip them in Miracle Whip. Instead I dipped mine in some melted butter with lemon and sea salt. Excellent!
