We'll admit it. Most of the time we use artichokes in our recipes, they come in a jar packed in oil. Frozen artichoke hearts are also a great time-saving substitute. We understand that convenience is key for our home cooks. However, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't know how to properly cook an artichoke. They are delicious served with melted butter, hollandaise sauce or aioli. You can also throw them on the grill for a little char after they are cooked through.
Shelley demystifies the artichoke in our latest video: from how to select them to how to know when they are done cooking. Once you experience the stronger flavor of fresh chokes, you just may pick up some the next time you're at the market.
