    I still buy them, even at the outrageous prices. They're so good.

    I like to roast them if I have the oven on for something else.

    i usually boil/steam them and then dip them in lemon butter. they take about 45min to an hour.

    how long do they take in the oven?

    Maybe 30 mins in the oven.

    I boil/steam, too, sometimes. I make a sauce w/ mayo, lemon, garlic and chopped rosemary.

    What does an artichoke taste like? Is it like brussel sprouts?

    Suburbanbushbabe - is this garlic lemon butter your own concoction, or something you can buy?

    Own concoction: smash and mince a garlic bulb, squeeze half a lemon, add salted or unsalted butter (or butter spread of choice) - nuke until bubbly. Dip your artichoke leaves and enjoy!

    you could even slightly roast the garlic.

    okay, please explain..

    you trim the artichoke, and then just wrap it in saran wrap and it cooks in the microwave like that? do you add any water or anything?

    i usually boil them in water, and then either eat them as is, dipping the leaves in some garlic butter type sauce.. or i then proceed to slice them in half, scoop out the thistle, stuff the leaves with garlic, parsley, olive oil, parmesan cheese concoction, and bake in the oven..

    i also have a great risotto recipe that calls for artichoke, but i'm so lazy i usually just use the canned ones for that :)

    anyone else fry artichoke? i haven't been successful using a fresh one, so we always end up using canned hearts..
