I *love* artichokes!  

I prefer to boil them in water with lime halves until the stalk is just
tender enough that a knife point can be pushed through it.

I serve it with a vinaigrette made up of oil, vinegar, the scooped out
remnants of the lime pulp, salt, pepper, garlic, tarragon, and a little
lime juice.
