So much more flavorful than boiling. We have enjoyed armloads of delicious artichokes every day this week and this was one of my favorite methods. The intensity of artichoke flavor is lovely, and these are easier to prepare than boiling, which dilutes the artichoke flavor. I have a cleaning hint, especially for those dealing with organic home grown artichokes; soak them 30 minutes in a large bowl or bucket of water, then plunge them rapidly up and down in the water to rid them of dirt and aphids. After cutting in half, use the tip of a paring knife to score right under the base of the fuzzy choke-then pry out the choke with a spoon. It will pop out almost in one piece. More than 1/4 cup of water might be needed to steam for 20 minutes; I would say 1/2 cup if you don't have a tight sealing lid, or check at the midway point.
