Butter Dipped Artichoke

A yummy appetizer for you to try!

Butter Dipped Artichoke
4 artichokes
2 dried bay leaves
2 cloves garlic
4 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon Wildtree Lemon Pepper Blend
1 tablespoon Hot Chili Pepper and Garlic Blend

Clean the artichokes by slicing half of the stem, picking most of the smaller leaves around the bottom, slicing 1 inch off the top, and remove the tips of the leaves with scissors. In a large pot place enough water to reach 2 inches with 2 dried bay leaves, 2 cloves of garlic and place a steamer basket at the bottom. Place the arthichokes in the pot and cover with a lid and allow the artichokes to steam at medium heat for 30-35 minutes. Meanwhile in two small diping bowls place 2 tablespoons of butter in each. Add 1 tablespoon of Wildtree Lemon Pepper Blend to one bowl and 1 tablespoon of Wildtree Hot Chili Pepper and Garlic Blend to the other. Heat butter and seasoning in microwave for 20-30 seconds. (For awesome dip, combine both seasonings in all 4 tablespoons of butter.) When artichokes are done cooking, allow to cool and then lightly peel the artichokes of it's leaves. Serve with dipping sauces and enjoy.
