Put the artichokes in a steamer basket in a larger pot with a few inches of water, then bring to a simmer, covered, turn the heat down to low, and steam until tender, roughly 20-30 minutes. depending on your artichoke.
To test the tenderness, I see if a leaf of two removes easily, if they do, it's done.
When the artichokes are done, melt the ramp leaf butter in a pan, or just toss it in the microwave, then divide into 4 small dipping bowls.
Serve the artichokes with the butter on the side for dipping, along with a larger bowl at the table for collecting the spent leaves and choke. If this isn't the best tasting way to have artichokes you've ever had, please contact me for a full refund.
