Directions:
Put all ingredients except artichokes in large pot and bring to simmer. In the meantime, prepare artichokes. Wash artichokes under cold water. Cut off the stems close to the base. Pull off the lower petals that are small and tough. Cut off the top inch of the artichoke and rub with half a lemon to preserve the green color. If you wish, trim the thorny tips of the petals with kitchen shears. Place the artichokes in the steaming liquid, bottom up. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. The artichokes are done when a knife is inserted into the base and there is no resistance. Dip the leaves in lemon juice and melted butter if desired. May be served hot or cold.
