I was so excited when I realized I could cook artichokes in a pressure cooker! I put garlic cloves inbetween several leaves, add about a tablespoon of olive oil and a tsp of salt to about two cups of water. Cut the artichokes in half and cook anywhere from 7 1/2 minutes to 8 1/2 minutes depending on the size of the articokes. we love these and the pressure cooker cuts the time by a fourth.
