Aspargus

Over here in the Netherlands, the Aspargus-season has just started. How do you like ´em best? Do you like ´em anyway?

Straight peeled and cooked, or with eggs and ham with buttery sauce? Or....?



And yes, they make your urine smell...

I like em' raw, give it a try, you'll be amazed.
Steamed are good, but try sautéed in butter till slightly scorched for a change.

Try finding the biggest, fattest you can. They are super tender unlike the wee thin ones.
I used to pick them when I was a kid

There´s this Aspargus-farmer i know in the village i was born. I usually come there at the beginning of the season to get serveral kilos right of the field (its a two hour drive..).
He always has the greatest thick white ones. Tried some from the local supermarket last year, imported from spain, but they were completely tasteless compared to his. I love ´em, but I wouldn´t eat them all year through. They kinda mark the beginning of spring for me...

Asparagus is my favourite vegetable. My all time favourite is just lightly steamed (al dente) with a pat of butter and some salt.


Otherwise I grill them, fry them, bake them And raw too.

hm.. I like the really really thin ones, steamed just enough to break the chloroblasts. It's wonderfully crispy. I melt some butter and squeeze lemon on them, too. Yum!

Drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper, then broiled until tender. Try it you'll like it.

I like them roasted. Peel the tough part of the stem. Coat with a little olive oil and sprinkle with some kosher salt. Put in the oven for 12-15 minutes. I use whatever temperature the entree is at. This really brings out the flavor.

Does anybody else eat white (albino) asparagus? It's the best! Thicker is always better, of course, as it's more tender. I like them either boiled or just cooked in a pan. Throw some lemon pepper and butter on top. Serve with ham. Mmmmm...

I love them almost anyway you can cook them.

If you live or go to LA go to Cafe Med on Sunset across from Chin Chin's and get the Salmon and Asargus pasta, you will love it.

It's my favorite veggie, too. You know what the perfect way to cook it is? The microwave! I'm not kidding. Just put it in something with a lid or plastic wrap with a couple tablespoons of water. I usually do a bundle of it for 3 to 4 minutes. I like it when it's still firm, but not at all crunchy.
