We're dead in the middle of asparagus season, and on this
subject I prefer to quote James Beard:
"Some people would tell you that 1/2 pound of asparagus
is ample for 1 person. Actually most people can easily
consume 3/4 pound. If the asparagus has a great amount
of white, tough stalk which must be discarded, then even
a pound per serving may be needed."
I am counting about 22 spears per pound in some asparagus
I bought early saturday. So I guess the answer is... 15 to 20
