Great Tasting Asparagus
4/5/10 I just want everyone to know how great the asparagus is tasting! It is some of the sweetest asparagus I have tasted in the last few years. The best way I like to serve asparagus is roasted: Cut off the bottom woody part leaving 2" to 3" of tender sweet tip, toss with a little olive oil (always extra-virgin), some kosher salt and pepper and put on a baking sheet and roast in a 450 degree oven for 8 minutes or just until it begins to brown/golden. TIP: just before serving drizzle with a fresh squeeze lemon, not too much just enough to accent the flavor. The lemon will make the asparagus burst with flavor!
