This is my dad's specialty, with a few changes! --->First, to make the stuffing use half Italian seasoned bread crumbs and half parmesan cheese with a little salt, pepper and one clove of garlic per choke. Then, MOST important, DO NOT, I repeat, do not use vegetable oil! You will make my poor Italian Nana spin in her grave! Use extra virgin olive oil (look for it to say cold press on the label). Drizzle the oil over the top of the stuffed chokes and steam until done. *~*How to eat the choke: Scrape the meat and stuffing off the leaves with your teeth until you get to the thin papery leaves. At that point you take a knife and cut at an angle around the edge of the paper white leaves. Take you fork and remove all the white feathery part and what you have left is the heart of the artichoke. Cut that into bite size pieces and enjoy!
