VideoRecipe: How to Cook Artichokes

Dear Friends and Eaters,

I love artichokes but they are a pain in the you-know-what to clean. People buy them frozen or in a can but there is nothing like the real thing.  So I thought about creating a video with a step by step approach to teach you how to properly clean, trim and cook them. Make no mistake I am all for quick and easy but this is not so bad after all.  I usually clean a bunch of artichokes while watching Game of Thrones or reruns of my favorite, Trueblood, and then freeze whatever artichoke hearts I am not using. Frozen Artichokes will keep for about 3 months. Enjoy!
