Artichoke with Lemon Balsamic Butter

As I wandered through the grocery store last week, I could not help but notice the pile of artichokes. In the coming days I was determined to do something about it! What is the best way to enjoy artichoke? Boil it and make a delicious butter sauce for dipping.

Artichoke with Lemon Balsamic Butter Sauce
Recipe by Jeff
• 1 whole artichoke
• ¼ stick butter
• 1 lemon (juice)
• A few shakes of balsamic vinegar
• Salt and pepper to taste
Submerge the artichoke in boiling water and boil until soft (around 20 minutes). Melt the butter and add the lemon juice, balsamic, salt and pepper. Add a random sprig of really anything to make it beautiful! (This was my contribution). Peel the leaves off one by one, dipping soaking them in butter. Once you reach the center of the artichoke…enjoy the heart!

How do you like to use artichokes in cooking?
