Asparagus has been one of my favorite vegetables since I was about 12-13 years old. I never cared to “have a bite”, or taste, prior to my Mother announcing one Easter that asparagus was for the grown-ups only. Being the age I was and often bounced between the kid’s table and grown-up table, well, I had to try it. Not only did I try it, I ate all but 3 spears and yes, I landed in trouble, and was of course banished to the kid’s table for life!
It was a trick my Mom taught me well…. when it came to my kids and their veggies I used that same announcement to pique my childrens’ curiosity…not only about asparagus, but many other vegetables as well.
Below is one of my all time favorite recipe’s that a dear friend shared with me.
Give it try, you’re sure to enjoy it and might want to stock up on asparagus before winter arrives!
