Now’s the time to cook with and enjoy asparagus!

Did you know that asparagus was not cultivated in the US until 1850? That is amazing, since it was popular in Europe for 400 years earlier and was enjoyed as long as 3000 years ago in Egypt. Don’t buy it canned, don’t buy it frozen. Both are guaranteed to be disasters. You can only buy it fresh, now, when it’s in season. And you need to cook it fast, to a perfectly crisp-tender state of bright green perfection. Here is the recipe to enjoy!
