grilled artichoke.

Grilled Artichokes from Jocelyn:

1 lemon thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp salt
4 fresh artichokes
3 T olive oil
garlic salt and pepper
buttery dipping sauces or mayo mixtures

Combine lemon, next three ingredients and 2 1/2 cups water in large pot. Wash artichokes, cut off stem ends and trim about 1 inch from top of each artichoke. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 35-40 minutes or until stem end is easily pierced. Remove and let cool.

Preheat grill to 350. Carefully cut artichoke in half lengthwise, remove and discard choke (the hairy stuff). Liberally brush cut sides of artichoke with olive oil, and sprinkle with desired amount of garlic salt and pepper.

Grill artichokes, about 5 minutes on each side, serve with sauces.
