What can be better than some freshly steamed artichokes? Nothing! Take your artichokes - the globe type are so lovely... trim off the prickly parts on the end if you can be bothered. If not, steam them for an hour in a pot with water, white wine and some garlic. Enjoy with some fresh mayo or as we do the melted butter.
Pull off the leaves, dip, scrape and enjoy! The heart is located right under that fuzzy choke which you can easily pull off with a knife!
