Is this used in the annual Californian artichoke frenzy?

Why yes it is! And have you figured out the purpose of the two wells?

In one hole you put the artichoke and in the other you put a clarified butter dish?

Seems to be a problem with which hole you stick the artichoke in and which........on, never mind.

Ok, we have a winner!

I posted a picture of one of my artichoke plates. Here is a picture of an artichoke on a much prettier plate than mine.


Artichokes are commonly grown in California. I had a couple of plants in our backyard for a few years until I decided they were more of an aphid magnet than I cared to have back there. In the center of the plate you place your cooked artichoke. In the little artichoke bud well you place melted butter (I don't bother to clarify it), or mayonnaise or whatever dipping sauce you like. When I want a lower-fat sauce option, I like tomatillo sauce on artichokes. Just a little tip for my California friends.

Anyway, you pull leaves off of the artichoke and dip the meaty end of each leaf into your choice of sauce. You scrape the tasty artichoke meat off each leaf with your teeth, and then you place the scraped leaf on the outer rim of the plate. Eventually you take a spoon, scrape the fuzzy stuff off the artichoke heart and then eat the heart.

Yumm-oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.M. going out to our winner now...

Which cultivar do you have? I have a Meyer and love it! You can eat them as picked.

Sidestep.

Please allow me.

These are a couple of favorite pieces that might amuse you whilst wondering about those tongs.

Guy's name was Jerry Ringlien, as I recall.
Now, this guy's biz was advertising Oscar Mayer wieners........

Which, as it turned out, he did very well indeed.

Mr. Ringlien dispenses more truth and wisdom in these few glimpses into his life than many folks shall ever posses.

I have posted them before, so if you've seen them, pardons.
If you have not seen them, eat the wiener, LOL.

Wiener wisdom.
More balogna......
