If I had to make a list of all the reason that I love spring one of those reasons would be artichokes. Here is how I like to do them...

Ingredients for cooking the artichokes {this is for one artichoke}:
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 tbs oyster sauce
couple shakes of garlic salt

Ingredients for dipping sauce:
horseradish {just a tiny bit or a lot depending on how horsey you like it}
juice from half a lemon
two spoon fulls of mayo

Get a big pot fill it with water about 1-2" deep. Put a vegetable steamer in your pot and bring to a boil. Cut off the top of the artichoke and trim all the pokey leaves off. Place your artichokes in the steamer and add soy sauce, olive oil, oyster sauce and garlic salt. They usually take about 30-40 minutes to cook. If you are unsure if they are done just pull on one of the leaves with some tongs, if the leave easily falls off they are ready. Mix up your sauce and dive in. yum.

  5. OH YUM!! Artichokes are the ONE plant I can actually grow! Our artichoke produced tons last year and I'm the only one in our house that eats them. I'll have to drop some by for you guys! : )
