Spring is officially here and it is time to enjoy artichokes. I have always shied away from them in the store, thinking they would be hard to work with, but they are actually very easy to cut, clean and cook.
I made Roman-Style Artichokes (below) from the March issue of Martha Stewart. The directions were very simple and the result was delicious. Recipe Note: I would mix the cooking liquids and herbs together and then pour over artichokes.
Still not sure if you want to tackle cooking artichokes? Check out this easy how-to for preparing and eating artichokes. I am going to try doing it that way next time.
