All About Asparagus

Monday, April 2, 2012
Described by King Louis XIV of France as "the food of kings," asparagus is still regarded as a prince among vegetables. Asparagus is a harbinger of spring, and its arrival is eagerly awaited by many; myself included. There are so many ways to enjoy asparagus: simply roasted with a squeeze of lemon and some freshly ground black pepper, or as an ingredient in risottos, stir fries, and many other delicious dishes. While asparagus, like so many other vegetables, is technically available year round, now is the time to enjoy it at its best. Find out how to choose, store, prepare and best of all, eat asparagus, without resorting to drowning it in butter or smothering it in high-fat sauces.
