A wide stainless bowl
3 Artichokes with stems
Directions to Dry Artichokes
First, lay pieces of tape horizontally across the bowl. I use stainless steel because the scotch tape sticks and does not fall off.
In fact, I have re-used the same taped bowl many times to dry different sets of artichokes without changing the tape.
Next, lay additional pieces of tape vertically across the bowl.
You have now created a grid.
Now, place the artichokes within the grid. Make sure to keep the artichokes spaced apart so that air can circulate around them as they dry out.
Place the artichokes in a cool room away from sunlight.
The artichokes should dry out within 7 to 10 days and will be ready to use in all of your arrangements and home decor.
