    Default Asparagus

    I finished making the last of 15 pounds of asparagus into soup. Pete
    brought the stuff from the downstairs refrigerators up and I have 19
    more pounds to do. If it keeps up like this I may take Roundup to the
    hills. I think he is going to make some more friends on the street
    this afternoon -- he just picked so more.

    Ya gotta use it fresh while you can Kathi.
    Ours is going gangbusters right now. Poached eggs and asparagus on
    toast for breakfast, asparagus smeared with Boursin cheese, wrapped in
    Serrano ham then baked as an appetizer before dinner and asparagus
    lightly steamed then buttered with S&P along with baked sweet potato
    and rotisserie chicken as the main course. Tomorrow's lunch will be an
    asparagus quiche.
    We'll get our fill soon and then it'll be blanch, vac seal and freeze.
    The frozen stuff is great in the winter but nothin' beats having it
    fresh within a few minutes of cutting.

    Ross.

    ....where do you live again, Ross? I'll be right there! LOL

    I do understand the dilemma, I just envy it, as I don't have an asparagus
    garden. When my Dad had a B&B in Picton, Ontario, we used to go down every
    spring and go to the asparagus farm. Buy a big 10 pound bag of the skinny
    ones and eat asparagus with every meal while it lasted. Even instead of
    popcorn while watching a movie (at home of course) One year I bought extra
    and pickled it - but it turned out we weren't big fans of pickled asparagus.

    Thanks for some interesting ideas. Our dinner last night was steamed
    asparagus, baked sweet potato and roast pork.

    Guess I will have to try freezing some and see if I like it. If all I
    want to use it for is soup, then I had just as soon make soup now and
    freeze it. BTW, I used Emeril Lagasse's recipe for the soup. It uses
    all of the spear. No waste and a great flavor.

    I'm also jealous, living far from asparagus country. As it happens, my
    favorite asparagus memory (am I anal for even having that?) was a time
    in Picton, when I was visiting a friend and he insisted we visit the
    flats where they grew the lovely green veg. Stank like he**, but what a
    delicious supper!

    no that's not anal at all! My Dad doesn't have the B&B anymore, so one of
    many great memories I have of visiting him there, is going to the asparagus
    farm in the Spring! :-9
