Is this stuff just growing wild?
I had a friend from Southern Illinois who told me asparagus used to grow all along the railroad tracks there.
Oh asparagus, how I missed thou can't get more biological than these, no pesticides, treatments, and grown with thermal water
Spent about 30 minutes picking asparagus...could have gone on for hours...every time I decided it was time to leave I would spot another asparagus waiting for me
Ended up with two crates, going back to the field next week
Started off the season with a nice plate of pasta with asparagus and prosciutto crudo
Anyone else an asparagusophile, what's your favourite recipe?
geographically, it is in a perfect area, a thermal aquifer 60 meters under ground, used for irrigation, means that the asparagus is 'ready' weeks before it is in the rest of the country...and the soil is particularly good for all type of vegetables and fruits
another great recipe is asparagus and milk put in a blender, to achieve a creamy sauce, that mixed into pasta with crunchy bacon/pancetta on top
I had a 4 day business trip eating white asparagus in every imaginable way. I even had it in scrambled eggs with ham for breakfast.
You usually have to peel it or it will be really fibrous.
On the grill with some olive oil/salt/pepper and maybe some balsamic vinegar would be my preference but not what you'd find as often in Germany.
I either saute them in olive oil with salt and pepper and then drizzle a little balsamic over them when almost done, or I toss in olive oil with salt and pepper and then broil them for a few minutes. Love them with salmon(the stuff from Costco with the butter and dill).
