California Christmas: Boiled Artichokes

Finger food, seafood themed dinner? Not exactly vegetarian friendly... But a ton of fun and who doesn't like artichokes?

Clean up crew
Look at em go!
Boiled Artichokes with Lemon

Remove small, discolored leaves from the artichokes.
Slice a lemon or two.
Place artichokes and lemon slices in a pot of water.
Bring water to a boil then reduce to a simmer.
Simmer until chokes are tender, about an hour.
Serve with fresh lemon juice.

A few other dip ideas:
Dijon Dipping Sauce
Spicy Garlic Dipping Sauce
Creamy, Tangy Dipping Sauce
Quite a few more here...

Don't know how to eat an artichoke? Here's how!
