Wow! I've never done this before but it turned out GREAT!! Your procedure for preparing the artichoke had adequate detail for a novice like me to successfully complete it. Thanks!

Last time I checked, our grill was home to a nest of wasps (for the second time) so no grilling right now till they're dealt with. Irritating.

We have artichokes quite often though and just use a quick-lazy method that works for us. Even the prep is done lazy-way.
...rinse artichokes to remove any dust/spray/etc
...if stems are long enough to bother with, peel outer covering with a veg. peeler, then cut stems flat to bottoms
(..I don't cut off any of the leaf tips, etc, since they don't bother me)
...turn artichoke(s) upside down (slightly askew okay) and place in a microwave-safe bowl/container (if I'm making two, I'll use a rectangular Pyrex dish)...drape artichokes lightly with piece of dry-wax paper (or waxed paper, plastic wrap, etc)
...microwave on High about 5-15 min depending on number/size, or till a fork or knife tip can be easily pushed into the upturned artichoke bottom
...serve with lemon butter for dipping

...remove outer leaves one at a time, dip/scrape with teeth
...remove thinner and softer inner leaves a few at a time, dip/bite off
...scrape choke off with sharp tablespoon, etc
...chop up bare bottom and dip/eat

As mentioned, I don't have a problem removing the leaves with sharp tips attached to dip and eat--guess I just grab them lower down, etc. (If I did have to snip off all those tips, suspect we wouldn't eat artichokes as often and I'd miss that!)

I love your approach to sharing recipes. I'm not an engineer, but a lawyer, and I really appreciate the step by step and context. Appeals to and affirms the ridiculous methodical way i have! Brava/o!
