      This cooks the artichoke perfectly! Nice and soft and ready to eat! I used dried thyme in my garlic butter. This is a great appetizer to eat with friends. I would like to look into different dipping sauces for the artichokes to see how they would taste so will definitely make these again with some extra sauces in addition to the garlic lemon butter!!! I am thinking balsamic vinegar??? MMMmmm!!!!

      Great recipe. We enjoyed the garlic with the artichokes and much prefer this to a ranch dip that we have had before with artichokes. I added lemon zest to the artichokes while they steamed. The garlic lemon butter would be great for basting and dipping grilled seafood. Thanks Kimke!

      This is the way I eat my artichokes except that I cheat with the sauce and just microwave butter and garlic powder. I'll have to try adding some thyme.
