Perfect Articokes with Spicy Dipping Sauce

2 - 3 Medium Artichokes
(Large ones are a little tougher but can be used)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Butter
Morton's Nature Seasoning
Garlic Salt
Wash the Artichokes and cut off the top inch. Cut off the stem leaving only about 1/2 inch of stem on. Fill a large saucepan with about an inch and a half of water and the butter. Place Artichokes in the pan stem down and drizzle tops with Oil. Sprinkle generously with seasonings, cover pot tightly with Aluminum Foil and put on medium/high heat for ten minutes. Reduce heat to Medium/Low for an additional 20 minutes....
Check by poking stem with a fork - it should be very tender.
Spicy Dipping Sauce
3 Tbsp Mayo
1 tsp Ketchup
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Tabasco to taste
Mix all well and serve with chokes.

I will have to try that, looks like allot quicker way to cook them then boiling them in water for an hour.
