You may not all have asparagus beds like I do---yeah, I’m bragging and rubbing it in, I know. The ManyMeadows LOVE, LOVE asparagus. (and this is one thing you’ll find where we’re selfish and won’t share...unless you come eat with us!)
Right now I’m picking a small handful each day and soon it will be even more than that. It goes immediately into a cupful of water.
Even if you purchase your asparagus, the best way to store it is to break the cut ends off and stick the spears into a cup or glass of water. Store them in the refrigerator for about a week.
Try cooking them covered in the microwave in about a Tablespoon of water just until tender crisp and bright green.
Try grilling them on a layer of foil drizzled with olive oil, coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
We eat asparagus on pizza, throw it in a salad, put it on a veggie and dip platter, add it to pasta, and even in an omelet. Can you tell we like it? Yes, we do! Yum!
