Artichokes with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar

I learned this simple technique from one of my past clients: Cecelia Hurwich.  Thank you Cec!

1) Cut the top prickly part and the bottom stem of the artichoke off.

2) Take 3 garlic cloves and slice thinly.

3) Pull the artichoke leaves apart and push some garlic in between the leaves.

4) Pour 1 Tablespoon of good olive oil over each artichoke.

5) Pour 1/2 Tablespoon of Balsamic vinegar over each artichoke.

6) Put the artichokes in a pot with about 1 inch of water and cover.

7) Cook at high heat so that the artichokes with steam until you can easily pull out a leaf.  (1/2-1 hour)

8) Enjoy with Mayo or an Aioli of your choice.
