|Prepare and cook artichokes: Half fill a large pot with water. Add juice of ½ lemon to the water, bring to a boil. Cut off and discard stem at the base. Peel off outer layer of leaves. Cut off 1 inch from the top of each artichoke. Trim leave tips with kitchen shears. Add artichokes to water; simmer covered for about 25-30 minutes. (Alternatively, you can steam the artichokes in a steamer basket with about 1 inch of water.) Drain and add cool water to halt further cooking. When artichokes are cool enough to handle, remove from water.|
Prepare stuffing: While artichokes are cooking, peel and dice potatoes. Add to a second pot. Cover with water. Bring to boil, then simmer about 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Drain and place in a mixing bowl. Mash with a fork. Chop green onion; add to mixing bowl along with yogurt, butter, milk and pepper. Gently fold in crab.
Stuff and bake artichokes: Heat oven to 350 ?F. Spread the center leaves of the artichoke. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the fuzzy center. Fill artichoke with mashed potato crab mix. Place stuffed artichokes in baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes. About 10 minutes before removing from oven, top each stuffed artichoke with Parmesan cheese. Serve with lemon wedge.
