This is how we do them: We cut the little thorns off the ends and then place the arties in a plastic pan, along with a small amount of water and lemon juice. This pan is then covered in saran wrap and placed in the microwave for a few minutes. The cooking time varies with the size of the artie and how many you cook at once. Generally, we take them out and carefully remove the saran wrap (Be careful, this is a good place to get a nasty steam burn). Take a fork and punch it into the bottom. If it goes in easily, it is ready. If not, cook a little longer. Then serve on a plate with some dips, like melted butter, dressing, mayo or whatever. Enjoy!

I read Larry's method first, and it looks good and simple.

I have two ways of doing artichokes. First, use sissors to get the sharp things off the leaves. Those damm things hurt! I find it is a lot easier to cut the chokes in half while they are cold, so if you are planning on serving them in halves, then cut them and remove the "choke" (That's the hairy part on the inside).

If I plan on serving them whole, then I always use a large steamer. It takes awhile and like Lar said, you use a fork on the stem to see if they are done.

If I plan on serving them in halves, I can also steam them...but you know me, I love to throw things onto the BBQ grill...so I spice em up a bit, add a ton of butter and grill em! Man is THAT good!

Yum! Yes, grilled arties rock!

Have you ever had the ones at Cheesecake Factory? I hate that place as its so noisy, but the grilled artichokes are the best. The grilled eggplant sandwich is great too.

Hey that sounds perfect. Thanks Larry. Could I use a glass dish with a tight fitting lid instead? I'll be cooking 5 of them so would you say like 4 minutes?

You guys are great! I like the idea of cutting them in half and using scissors to get the stickers off....then I'll cook them Larrys way. Thanks...

There is a small place just outside of Buelton on the way to Solvang that also does a great job of grillin' the chokes!

As to grilled eggplant....I grill em with a little salt and olive oil and serve it with garlic mayo..YUMMERS!


BTW, had a little family thing here yesterday and everybody LOVED my BBQ chicken! So, here is the easy way to make BBQ chicken for a large crowd.

I used drums and thighs so there was really no need for oil on the outside, nor any need to brine the chicken..so I took em right out of the bag and put em on the hot grill.

The idea is only to cook the outside and get it nice and brown and good. That's because the high heat of the BBQ grill does not really cook into the interior too much.

So once they were brown, I took em off the heat and put em into a big bowl and added the BBQ sauce. I let em sit for a couple of minutes as I put the brined corn on the grill for a bit. Then I put it all back on the grill, turned the heat to low and covered the BBQ for 20 minutes.

Cooked all the way through, a little carmelization from the sauce..yummy!!

That should work. You want them to steam in there.

I am not sure about the cooking time. Less is better with microwave as you can check the arties and then cook more if needed. Probably with five, you may need more time, but I would start with three minutes and then see how they are doing.

I really think my grandkids like the things because they can "play in their food" without being scolded. LOL!

Thanks again for your suggestions. They also want chicken but it'll be a couple of those roasted ones from COSTCO.

I'll start with 3 minutes then check their bottoms to see if they're done.

Hmmm, I was at your old house a few times and at the new location once. I think we brought Red's BBQ back.

Still, it probably was Janice with the fork
