1. Using kitchen shears, trim off and discard the sharp ends from artichoke leaves. Place artichokes in a large saucepan or Dutch oven.


2. Finely shred 1 teaspoon lemon peel from lemon; place in a small bowl. Cut lemon in half; squeeze juice over artichokes in saucepan and add the lemon halves to the pan. Pour oil and sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the tarragon over artichokes. Add enough cold water to pan to cover artichokes. Cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer covered until artichokes are tender, 50-55 minutes.


3. Meanwhile for aioli, add mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon tarragon to bowl with lemon peel; mix well. Drain artichokes; serve warm with aioli.
