My girls love artichokes. I cut off the end of the stalk and then peel the stalk - I just use a knife but you could use a veggie peeler, I think. Then I cut off the ends of the leaves (the thorn) with a kitchen scissors. Put them in a pot filled about halfway with water and simmer until a knife stuck between the stalk and the artichoke comes out easily - usually about 1/2 hour or 45 minutes. My girls dip the leaves in melted butter (non dairy butter, as is the case in our house) but as a kid, we used to dip the leaves in mayo. I still prefer it that way.

I rub some lemon across the top of the artichoke after cutting off the top. I also don't trim all the thorns unless someone is going to see them, because the thorns get soft after cooking, anyway.

Oh, and I put lemon slices and a few cloves of garlic in the water, as well.

Mayo is a popular dipping sauce as well, if that's your thing (yuck!)
