More and More Asparagus

When it is in season we eat asparagus constantly. Just like we eat corn daily, strawberries, and tomatoes for their short seasons. Needless to say, I'm always on the look-out for ways to enjoy our favourite spring vegetable. Here is a round-up of recipes, both mine and others, that showcase this great green stalk.

--- Asparagus Risotto (Backseat Gourmet
--- Asparagus Soup (Use Real Butter)
--- Pickled Asparagus (Food in Jars)

Go forth, gather, and eat while the eating is good.
