Long Stem Artichokes

I am having a very busy weekend so just a short post today. These were something new for me. Long stem artichokes, you can eat the stems just like the heart.

 First I boiled them in lemon pepper water.

 Then I split them in half and took out the choke.  ("They might have choked Arty but they ain't gonna choke me.")  I added a pat of butter and some sea salt and baked them until the butter melted.

 They sure were good.  These were the best artichokes we've ever eaten.  So, if you see them at your store, give them a try.
