Artichokes can be prepared by boiling or steaming, the artichoke heart can also be preserved in oil. Another way to use artichokes is to completely break off all of the leaves, leaving the bare heart. The leaves are steamed to soften the fleshy base part of each leaf to be used as the basis for any number of side dishes or appetizing dips, or the fleshy part is left attached to the heart, while the upper parts of the leaves are discarded. The remaining concave shaped heart is often filled with meat, then fried or baked in a savory sauce. Frozen artichoke hearts are a timesaving substitute, though the consistency and stronger flavor of fresh hearts when available is preferred.
