My five year old grandson insisted I buy an artichoke at the HFS and I have no idea what to do with it raw. Cooked yes but I don't do that anymore of course. Any suggestions, recipes?

It sounds great but I've never seen that kind of artichoke. : )

I imagine any artichoke would do. ~ Cathy

Snowdrop posted a recipe on her blog a few weeks ago.....I'll see if I can find it...
*runs to recipe book....*
Ok, here it is ~
Artichoke and Mayo Dip or Dressing
Peel one artichoke. Get heart.
Place the leaves/heart (cut up) in a flat baking dish (I used a 9x13 baking dish). Pour in 1/2-1 C evoo (depending on how big the 'choke is), 1/2 tsp. sea salt, and the juice of 1 small (or 1/2 of 1 large) lemon. Make sure the leaves are coated, and cover the dish in saran wrap. Leave to marinate at least 2 hours.
In food processor blend:
1/2 cup of almonds
1 cup of cashews
1 tsp of honey
Strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or similar method (I use that thing you use to screen grease splatter when you cook - works well!).
Remove artichokes from marinade and trim off any sharp tips/hard parts with a knife - once you've marinated them, the parts that don't have "meat" on them are more apparent - a darker color. Trim those off so you're getting the good stuff!
Then, blend in a food processor:
the artichoke leaves and heart bits
strained "milk" mixture (step 2)
1 tsp of paprika
and, optionally, 1/2 tsp of fresh dill
Strain all of that all over again the same way you did in step two - viola!! It thickens up in the fridge.

Martha Stewart believe it or not had a great raw recipe in her April 2007 issue. It was good and I made it for Easter.
It also had shaved raw manchego cheese mixed in with the artichoke and parsley but I mixed in a little sour kraut instead. The one I used was served with a proccuto ham slice on the side :eek: I substituted marinated red pepper slices, and flat bread, I used flax crackers.
