Frozen asparagus is lackluster. Canned is often mushy. There just is no good way, in my opinion, to preserve asparagus.
So, we wait. A few days ago, the long wait ended when we each had 2 steamed spears with dinner.
The first asparagus harvest!! It is trickling in. I am lucky that I have very generous neighbors that share with me from
their well-established bed.
We love it. Lily and Paco especially will eat pounds a day. If you think perhaps you don’t like asparagus, eat it the same day it is picked and you will change your mind.
I never buy it at the store, preferring to wait for the good stuff and then we revel in it!
