"These steamed artichokes are delicious and light, perfect for an appetizer. Dip the leaves in melted butter or mayonnaise."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
It has so much flavor that dipping the leaf in butter when eating isn't needed. I don't have a steamer basket so I just put the artichokes in about 3 inches of water and put the lid on. I cooked them for about 40 minutes and they were great.
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.
It has been my experience that artichokes take 1 to 1.5 hours to steam. I don't use a steamer basket, just place them at the bottom of the pot. I wanted to share a delicious dipping sauce. One cup mayo, 2 tbls soy sauce, one garlic pressed and 1/3 grated parmesan mixed together. Prepare ahead of time and chill in refrigerator. I found a similar recipe years ago, couldn't find it recently so I did my best to recall it. Came out great!!
I think the cooking time was not even close. Othewise very nice
I grew the ones I am cooking now. Next time I will cook upside down in 2 in. of seasoned water
