      Title: Cooking artichokes
 Categories: Low fat, Vegetarian
      Yield: 1 Servings
  Choose nice firm artichokes that are not turning brown or looking
  dry. (I like to serve one artichoke per person.) Cut off the stems
  even with the bottom of the artichokes. Cut about an inch off of the
  top of the artichokes-straight across the tops of the leaves. Using a
  pot that's large enough to accomodate the chokes in a single layer,
  arrange artichokes in bottom of pot. Add water to a depth of 1 to 2
  inches. Bring water to a boil and turn down heat so that the water
  remains at a low simmer. Cover pot and cook for 45 minutes. Check
  occasionally to be sure the water is not boiling away, and add more
  if necessary.  The test for doneness is to pull out a leaf.  If it
  comes away from the artichoke easily, it's done. Serve on a plate
  with a small bowl of dipping sauce. To eat artichokes, pull off
  individual leaves, dip in sauce, and scrape leaf between teeth to
  remove the soft pulp near the bottom of the leaf. The remainder of
  the leaf is discarded.  As you get near the center, the leaves become
  tenderer and a greater portion of each leaf is edible. When you are
  near the center, remove any remaining leaves, and you'll see a fuzzy
  thing called a choke. This is not edible.  Scrape it off with a knife
  or spoon and discard. Under the choke is the heart which many think
  is the best part of an artichoke (though I kind of like the leaves
  better myself). The heart is completely edible.  Cut it up and dip
  the pieces in the sauce.
