- 1 whole artichoke
For dipping sauces:
- 1/4 butter
- 1/4 mayo
- 1-2 cloves garlic
Boil water in a pot, larger if you are going to do more than 1 artichoke.
Cut off the top and bottom of the artichoke.
Place in boiling water, for about 15 minutes, or until the leaves at the bottom start to fall off.
Using tongs, pick up the artichoke from the water, turn upside down to dump off any excess water.
For dipping sauces (This is the super simple, dad way):
Sauce 1: Melt butter in microwave and a clove of garlic
Sauce 2: Mix mayo and clove of garlic
Devour the artichoke. When you get to the part where it is fuzzy, get a spoon and scoop out the fuzz. Chop up the heart, and place in remaining dipping sauces, and enjoy!
