I must have been a weird child. While most kids were requesting pizza and mac & cheese, I was requesting artichokes. These were my FAVORITE when I was little. I still love them, but I don't make them very often because HELLO, they are expensive!! No wonder my parents only bought them on "special occasions."
Put them in a large pot and boil for about 45 minutes-1 hour.
Serve with butter and a little lemon juice mixed together for dipping.
