Steamed Artichokes With Garlic Mayonnaise

Garlicky mayonnaise is one of the best things to dip artichoke leaves into. This spring superstar is actually a variety of thistle. Once steamed the leaves and heart are delicious. To eat an artichoke, dip the fleshy part of the leaf in sauce and pull through your teeth to remove the artichoke flesh and sauce. Throw away the leaf. After you’ve dipped your way through most of the leaves, pull away the center leaves to expose the prickly “choke.” Scoop away the choke and then dig into the tender heart.
