My artichokes were large. I pressed a garlic clove into the top of each, squeezed the juice of half a lemon on them and dropped the rind in the pot with the bay leaf, sprinkled each with Kosher salt and pepper, and followed the recipe. I melted 2 T butter with a slice of lemon in the MW for each of us to dip; served with oven-roasted chicken thighs and garden tomato salad. Beautiful plate and delicious, too.
The artichokes ended up taking 3 hours for the leaves to be tender enough to eat and the heart was way over cooked. The flavor was also bland. I will stick to boiling them.
