This recipe for Mom’s Artichokes and Artichoke Dipping Sauce brings back so many childhood memories for me. And my mom’s method for cooking them cuts the artichokes in half and makes this a perfect side dish for a special meal!
I had an amazing mother who made homemade bread three times a week for her family of 10 children! I miss her so much, and out of all recipes on my blog, this recipe for Mom’s Artichokes and Artichoke Dipping Sauce is the one that makes me miss my mother the most. My mom served this as a special side dish, so today I’m featuring it as a Friday Favorites pick to remind you about it as an option for Easter dinner!
I grew up in a family where most of us considered fresh artichokes to be a delicacy, thanks to the wonderful mom who taught us to love them. But with a family of ten kids to feed, artichokes were pricey, so we never got them as often as we wanted. It wasn’t until I was well on the way to adulthood that I realized that some people didn’t eat artichokes, and had no idea how to cook them.
