Asparagus – fresh from the garden

I love spring.  The asparagus has sprung and the flowers are blooming.  We planted asparagus a few years ago and it is taking off like crazy.

We have three different varieties.  I like them all.  The purple is pretty; can’t say it tastes different but it is a lovely color raw and still pretty when cooked.

I just did a quick saute today.  About 5 minutes over medium heat with a tablespoon butter and a clove of minced garlic.  We like a bit of crunch so cook longer if you prefer more tender asparagus.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly

  1. I see your purple asparagus did stay a little bit purple. I have a little wild asparagus that grows in my orchard that I can sometimes get before the deer eat it.
