I love artichokes so when I walked into my local market and saw huge ones on sale for 99 cents each, I bought 10 of them. Then I made them the way we most enjoy them. I boiled them whole in lemon pepper seasoned water. You can buy the seasoning or make your own. Add salt to the water either way. When the artichokes are done, turn them upside down on towels and let them drain thoroughly. Cut each one in half and remove the choke. drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cracked black pepper and sea salt. Fire up your grill and cook the artichokes cut size down until they are seared.
Serve them with some melted butter for dipping.
Better yet, serve them with melted ramp butter. Everything is better with ramps!
