SPRING – The Joy of Asparagus | Seasonal Cooking

Get your asparagus on this Spring.

Spring Asparagus is in a class of its own. Fresh, gentle, spring green and tender stalks – for me, so evocative of hot steamy days and the typical Australian BBQ with a large plate of char grilled asparagus stalks with lemon and sea salt.

I have been baking it lately, wrapping it in foil with butter, lemon juice and sea salt, or with some white wine, butter and sea salt. Popped in an oven for 15 or 20 minutes and the resulting tender and flavoured asparagus is meltingly tender. Asparagus and butter is a perfect match determined by some golden deity many eons ago.
