Artichokes al Fresco
We bought and artichoke and looked at it in confusion for several days, being in a field with no internet - how would we ever know what to do with it.
So I went for an easy option of wrapping it in tinfoil, throwing in some butter and garlic and throwing it on the barbeque. After cutting away the stalk and the tops of the leaves, we cooked it for about 15-20 minutes. Then peeled ff the outside leaves, and nibbled the ends covered in butter, then took away the flowery parts in the centre to reveal a nicely cooked heart
Good guess work, now to find out how you're really supposed to cook them....
