Artichokes are an excellent food.

In fact, there are many artichoke recipes in Italian cuisine.


Unfortunately, however, many people give up as cleaning artichokes seems too complicated.

So here is my step-by-step guide to cleaning artichokes to perfection!!!

 

  • ALWAYS USE GLOVES TO CLEAN ARTICHOKES OR YOUR FINGERS WILL GET STAINED

  • BREAK OFF THE OUTER HARDER LEAVES

  • CUT THE TIP OF THE SOFT LEAVES

  • PEAL THE STEM, TAKING OFF THE OUTSIDE HARD SKIN

  • CUT THE ARTICHOKE IN HALF

  • USING THE TIP OF THE KNIFE, CUT OUT THE HEARY CENTER 

  • CUT THEM AS SMALL AS NEEDED FOR THE RECIPE.

  • PLACE THE ARTICHOKES IN WATER WITH SOME LEMON JUICE, THIS WILL AVOID THEM TURNING DARK

  • IF THE RECIPE CALLS FOR THE ARTICHOKE TO REMAIN WHOLE, CLEN THEM AS ABOVE, BUT DON’T CUT THEM IN HALF.

  • TURN THEM HEAD DOWN AS IN PICTURE.

  • PRESS AND ROLL THE HEAD OF THE ARTICHOKE TO OPEN THE LEAVES

  • OPEN THE LEAVES EVEN MORE WITH FINGERS

  • HELPING YOURSELF WITH THE TIP OF THE KNIFE, TAKE THE HEARY CENTER OUT

  • PLACE THE ARTICHOKES IN WATER WITH SOME LEMON JUICE, THIS WILL AVOID THEM TURNING DARK
