Cooking an artichoke: Trimming the leaves.
Image by Thomas Cizauskas
Select a fresh artichoke. (The top leaves of a fresh artichoke will squeak a bit when pinched.)

Use a large, sharp knife and cut off the top third of the artichoke. Peel off the smallest bottom leaves, and use scissors to trim the sharp thorn tips off each of the remaining leaves. Use the knife to cut the stem off close to the bulb, making the cut as straight as possible so the artichoke can easily sit upright without tipping over.

Step 1. Trimming the leaves.
Step 2. Simmer upside-down
Step 3. Simmer right-side up.
Step 4. Eat the leaves.
Step 5. Preparing the choke.
Step 6. Removing the ‘hair.’
Step 87: Eating the choke.
