Hot Artichoke Dip

This is another winner from my grandma Betty.  She really was the best cook, but every time I make one her recipes I feel her here with me.

Food is a great way to make memories and remember people.

Make sure you hand chop your can of artichokes, don’t put them in the food processor.  They will turn to mush and your dip with not be good.

This dip is great for any occasion, and even though it’s best eaten hot, it still tastes great eaten at room temperature.

I like to serve it with chips, but some veggies would also be good with it.

Salt and Lemon Boiled Artichokes with Balsamic Dill Mayo

I love artichokes.  I love this dipping sauce maybe more than artichokes.

I think I eat artichokes sometimes just to eat the sauce.

Bonus: my kids love artichokes too.  I think because they are an interactive vegetable.

Get your self some nice green artichokes.  These are huge ones.

Trim them up.  I just cut off the bottom and a few of the very bottom leaves.

Put them in a pot with a sliced lemon and about a tablespoon of salt.

Cover with water, put a lid on the pot, and boil away.

Mine took about an hour and 15 minutes. You want a fork to go into the stem portion without any resistance.

While the artichokes are cooking, make your sauce. Mix together mayo, balsamic vinegar, and dill.

Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.
