  2. Stir well and then put the mayo in the fridge until later. If you're using fresh baby artichokes, clean and trim them first. Here’s how to do it. Then add the cleaned artichokes or frozen artichokes to a large saucepan and add water until the artichokes are submerged. Season with a little salt.

  3. Place the pan over medium heat until the artichokes are simmering gently. Then cook them for 10 minutes until soft. Drain (slice the artichokes in half if they were frozen in one piece) and place them on kitchen paper to drain further for 10 minutes.
