Prepare an artichoke heart in four simple steps.
- Place the artichoke on its side and cut off the top two rows. Ask a parent to help.
- Peel back the tough outer leaves until only about 6 rows of soft leaves remain.
- Save outer leaves for steaming and dipping in butter later!
- Scoop out the center and cut off the stem—and your artichokes are ready to use.
