Ingredients

  • Kosher salt
  • 4 artichokes (10 to 12 ounces each)
  • 1 lemon, halved

Preparation

  1. 1. Fill a large pot with enough water to reach the bottom of a steamer basket. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil.
  2. 2. Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, cut off the top third of the artichokes; using a vegetable peeler, peel the stems. With kitchen shears, snip off any sharp tips from the remaining leaves. Rub all the cut surfaces with half a lemon.
  3. 3. Spread the artichokes open with your hands. Place stem-side up in the basket with the 2 lemon halves, cover, and steam until a paring knife inserted in a stem meets little resistance, 25 to 35 minutes.
