Home Happy Cinco De Mayo!! May 5, 2014 Happy Cinco De Mayo my friends!! What is everyone doing for this festive day??!! I have been getting many requests on how to prepare artichokes and new recipes. I found a fabulous link on how to prepare them and I am attaching a few of my very own recipes below. How To Prepare An Artichoke: http://www.foodnetwork.com/how-to/photos/how-to-trim-an-artichoke.html Grilled Artichoke Recipe Ingredients: 2 artichokes 1 lemon (juice) 4 cloves garlic 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon dried basil Sea salt & ground pepper Directions: In a large bowl, fill the bowl with cold water, and add 1/2 the lemon juice. Trim the tops of the artichokes, and cut them in half. Place the artichokes in the lemon water. In a large pot, fill with water, and bring to a boil. Prepare your outside grill for medium heat. Add the artichokes in the boiling water, and cook for 15 minutes. Drain water, and squeeze remaining lemon juice over artichokes. In a small bowl, add olive oil, garlic, and seasonings. Brush artichokes with a coat of garlic marinade, and place artichoke halves on the grill. Grill for 10 minutes or until brown. Serve with remaining marinade.
