Just get a medium sized artichoke and cut off the top and trim the leaves. Then fan it out. Next you pick out whatever kind of apple you want and slice it. I used Granny Smith. Tuck the slices into the artichoke leaves and in the center. Then grab a measuring cup (or shot glass :D ) and pour out one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Drizzle it over the artichoke. Wrap in foil and bake for 1 hour and 15minutes at 375. Dont't forget to eat the heart and a lot of people dont realize that you can peel away the green part of the stem and eat the white fleshy center. The heart and stem are the best part!!
