Fresh, local asparagus…

007 (1024x765)

Asparagus is ready!  Yum!  I’ll be making some daily now until the season’s done.  Hopefully that won’t be for several weeks, but its been so hot that the season may be shorter than usual.

Asparagus is so quick and easy to prepare.  After trimming off any woody end bits, all I do is lightly steam it for about 5 minutes and then top with some butter, sprinkle it with some salt and pepper and its ready to serve.  That’s our favourite way of eating it, but it also tastes great brushed with some olive oil and then either grilled or baked in a 400 degrees oven for about 15 minutes.  Either way, its so delicious and nutritious too!
