Easy Guide on how to prepare Globe Artichokes

To serve whole, cut the tough tips of the leaves off with scissors, holding the stalk to keep the artichoke steady. Using a knife, slice the base off, so that it will sit upright, before trimming off the pointed top (the younger the artichoke, the less you’ll need to cut off). Pull the pale centre leaves out, then scoop the choke out with a spoon, without disturbing the heart underneath.

To prevent browning, drop each one in a bowl of water to which a little lemon juice has been added. Cook them in a pan of boiling salted water for 35-45 mins (when they’re ready you should easily be able to pull out a leaf). Drain upside down.

Iron, copper and aluminium cookware may cause artichokes to discolour; stainless steel, glass or enamel is better.
