A question about a recipe: Artichoke Dip (Which You Could Make into Tapenade by Adding Capers)

I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Artichoke Dip (Which You Could Make into Tapenade by Adding Capers)" from drbabs. It says:

"Place: artichoke hearts, garlic, Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon and zest, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, 1 dash each of paprika and cayenne in the work bowl of a food processor and process till the artichokes are chopped very small and everything is more or less blended together."

I LIVE ON ARTICHOKE HEARTS. WE BUY THE COSTCO SIZE JARS. SURELY YOU DON'T MEAN ONE OF THOSE SIZE JARS. WHAT SIZE JAR ARTICHOKE HEARTS DO YOU USE FOR THIS RECIPE?

LOL! I live on artichokes, too! I don't know what you mean by the Costco-sized jars. I'd say start with 6-8 hearts and go from there. It's a very forgiving recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh, I just went back to the recipe and read the comments, and saw that I used a 12 ounce jar of artichoke hearts from Trader Joe's when I made this. So about 1/4 of your Costco jar would work.
