I been eating artichoke every since I was a kid. Everyone make their sauce different for the artichoke. I think Jamie show an outstanding demonstration on how to eat and what too eat from the artichoke. He also tell you how minutes to cook the artichoke. Some people can over cooked the artichoke. Jamie keep up the good work in demonstrating how to cook different items.

I love artichokes! However, I trim the tops, coat the edges with lemon juice, boil for about an hour until very tender, and use Hollandaise sauce for dipping smile

Enjoyed that! Wish you'd do your next "artichoke" video showing a good recipe for stuffing (and baking) the artichoke. And... how about a recipe for Shrimp and Artichoke Soup?! Both of these are things I grew up eating during my childhood in New Orleans. My Mama never knew how to do either...we had to buy them ready-made at the local Grocery's Deli. Would love your take on these!

I have been eating artichokes all my life, and the way I remove the (hair) choke, is with the spoon. You don't loose any of the good stuff, plus you have a little bowl for what you want to flavor with. I'm a purist, I eat the whole thing that is edible and don't use anything but a little salt.

I tried to cook an artichoke one time, I cooked it, then kept peeling the leaves off, I ended up with the center, I tasted the part you threw away it was yukky, so I threw the rest of the artichoke away. I thought maybe I bought an empy one? lol I will try again now that I have seen this video.

Jamie I'm old school, Southern California raised (I think I had artichoke's at birth).. Heres how we did it.. Cut the bottom like you did but didnt cut the top.. Steamed them (didnt set them in water).. About the same cooking time. Tested for duness with a fork (if it penatrate the heart easily lets eat).. Cleaning the heart I use a soup spoon.. I use Mayo not butter.. Thanks Ken PS - I have your mothers cook ware and love it..

Jamie I am so glad you made this video. For years I have been using my pressure cooker to cook Artichokes. I was taught to clean them just like you show, but then put them in the pressure cooker with a cup of water, 1 package of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. 1/4 cup olive oil & 1/4 cup red wine vinegar. set pot for 10 lbs pressure for 20 minutes. dip those succulent leaves in butter and work your way to the prize choke. EVERYTHING taste better when eating Artichokes, wine, shrimp etc. Give you mom a hug for me!

Gale - try the ketchup and mayo with a bit of horseradish for zing then let us know how you like that. It works beautiful with blooming onions and alll kinds of fresh veggies too. Awesome!

Thank you Jamie. I have always wanted to try cooking artichokes and have read many sites but never was comfortable with the insructions. FINALLY a step by step, visual, that looks easy and fun. Can't wait to try it. p.s. loved your mom's show for years, love her recipes, and now yours too. Would absolutely love to some day get to meet her, and you young men too. Keep up the great shows please. Thanks again.
