Artichoke Arrangement

Wow, this is so simple and simply gorgeous. A dual purpose piece: conversation starter and edible.

You'll need:
  • About 12 artichokes
  • Lemons
  • Eucalyptus leaves (available from florists)
1. Pile the artichokes pyramid-style in a shallow bowl.
2. Fill in with small lemons and sprigs of eucalyptus.
3. The artichokes should keep on the table for a couple of days. When you're finished with the arrangement, steam them and serve with lemon juice and butter.
