Are you an asparagus lover?
Are you an asparagus lover? As a child I definitely did not like asparagus. The only asparagus we knew came in a can. It was not until we started growing asparagus that I had fresh asparagus to eat. Wow, what a difference! Now for the next 6-8 weeks is the season for our asparagus. We have some organic asparagus. We sometimes have white asparagus. Please let us know ahead if you want white asparagus.
Storing asparagus is easy just keep it cool ( refrigerator), a little water on the cut ends is ok but don’t let the spears lay in water.
I like asparagus very simple, lightly steamed. Asparagus is something you don’t want to over cook! Perhaps you may have favorite way to eat it yourself? One of the benefits of farmer’s markets is the inter-change of ideas and traditions among customers. If you would like you can share a recipe with others, leave it in the comment section.
