I took this recipe out of my slow cooker recipe book. I like artichokes stuffed as well, but these plain artichokes were just simple and delicious. I served this with a tomato, mozzarella, green olive, basil, crouton, green leaf lettuce salad. Sprinkled a tiny bit of olive oil over the salad and enjoyed this with the artichoke. This makes a lovely lunch. One can dip the tender leaves in melted butter if desired. Hope you enjoy it too!


  1. Cut off the bottom stem of the artichoke.
  2. Cut off 1/2-1" from the top of the artichoke.
  3. Wash artichokes thoroughly and place standing up in a slow cooker.
  4. Fill the slow cooker with water about 3/4 to top of artichoke.
  5. Mix lemon juice and salt together.
  6. Sprinkle on top of each artichoke.
  7. Spoon a bit of water on top of each artichoke.
  8. Cover and cook 10 hours low or 2-4 hours high.
  9. I spooned water over the tops of the artichoke during mid time of cooking.
