Take the artichokes and cut off the stems and top of the leaves. Then spread the leaves and run water in them and place upside down on a plate to drain. Then mix bread crumbs, olive oil and chopped garlic together. Spread the leaves and fill with bread crumbs. Put in a pan with water to about half way up the artichoke and simmer with a lid on for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. You will know they are done with the leaves come off easily. Enjoy!
