We are at home during Asparagus season for the first time in three years. We have been home for the beginning or the end of the season in the past couple of years but not the whole season. We are inundated with asparagus. We are buried in asparagus. If you look closely, you will only see the tips of our noses showing over the piles of asparagus coming out of the garden.
But, we are bravely trying to eat the asparagus while it is fresh. Somehow, canned or frozen asparagus is not as yummy as fresh.
Here are some of our favorite ways to eat asparagus.
Sauteed with Garlic. A go-to recipe. Quick and delicious.
