  1. Use kitchen shears to snip off the pointy edges of the bracts.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut off the stem of the artichoke so it sits flat.
  3. Add a couple of inches of water to a large pot, then add the artichokes bottom side down.
  4. For a little extra flavor, add a bay leaf and lemon slice, then bring to a boil over high heat.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and bring to a simmer, then cover and cook artichokes for about 30 minutes or until tender (a knife should be able to pierce the bottom with ease).
  6. Remove the artichokes from the pot and allow to cool.
  7. While artichokes are cooling, mix the mayonnaise, yellow mustard, agave nectar and fresh lemon juice in a bowl, then serve!
