The Fastest Way To Clean And Prep An Artichoke

The Fastest Way To Clean And Prep An Artichoke

Artichokes are members of the thistle family, which can make seem a little prickly and unapproachable — but they’re really good for you, and tasty too. This video from the folks at Panna shows you the fast, easy way to clean and prep them for cooking.

The clip tells the tale here, but essentially you just pull off the tough, fibrous exterior leaves, slide off the stem and trim off the top of the artichoke heart, and then trim off the tough portions of the stem section you pulled off. Cooking it from there is up to you, as you can prep them in dozens of ways (Panna suggests this braised artichoke recipe) — but even just steamed artichokes make a delicious and healthy addition to a meal.
