   Grilled Baby Artichokes

24 baby artichokes (about 3 lbs.)
2 cups water
2 Tbsp. cider or balsamic vinegar or lemon juice
1/4 cup flavored olive oil (roasted garlic or basil)
Kosher salt
Cracked pepper

   Rinse artichokes under cold running water. In large saucepan, bring the 2 cups water and vinegar to boiling. Add artichokes and simmer until just beginning to get tender, about 3 minutes for smaller babies, 5 minutes for larger babies. Drain well and let cool briefly, for easier handling. Cut off ends of stems. Peel back and snap off petals until you come to a center cone of paler green petals. Cut off top third of each artichoke. Cut artichokes in half lengthwise. Toss artichokes with flavored olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange on grill over medium high heat and cook until beginning to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook another 3 to 5 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
