First local asparagus tonight
Picked up at local grocery ... some stalks thick, so I peeled the "skin" for the lower half of the stalks
Soaked in water while I prepped the steaks, onions, 'shrooms
I've learned to like our asparagus pencil thin to thick as your thumb.
Then tossed in skillet with boiling (beyond boiling) hot grapeseed oil
Splash of white wine and cover
Steam (with the oil) as well as crisp fry them.
We enjoy our neighbors "Empire Asparagus Festival - 5th Annual Empire Asparagus Fest!"
Have you tried Asparagus Brats? How about deep fried Asparagus ?
Don't knock them till you try them
Think "snap it"
