Artichokes - San Diego, California Talk Radio Station - 760 KFMB AM - 760kfmb


It's easy to forget about these prickly, goofy-looking things in the supermarket. But they're so good you shouldn't - they make a great appetizer. Sometimes we have them right with the rest of our dinner. Don't forget about the artichoke hearts after...


  • 3 artichokes (my family almost eats 1 each)
  • 1 1/2 lemons
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 stick of butter


  1. Cut the stem and about 1 inch off the top of each artichoke
  2. Cut the point off each leaf
  3. Place artichokes in large pan with water about halfway up each choke
  4. Squeeze 1 lemon over chokes in pan
  5. Bring to a boil, turn down and simmer covered for about 45 minutes
  6. Remove from water, cool & serve with all three dipping sauces - yes all three
  7. Dip 1 - Melt butter in small pot - so simple, so right
  8. Dip 2 - Mix half the mayo with curry powder and mix well
  9. Dip 3 - Mix other half of mayo with basil, garlic and juice from half of a lemon
