Asparagus has always
been one of our favorite vegetables. Once I learned how to cook fresh asparagus
I've taken advantage of doing it lots of ways. I've steamed them in a steamer
on the stove top, and in the microwave. I've roasted and grilled asparagus.
cooked asparagus with orange, ginger
and sesame oil. I've cooked asparagus with a wide variety of things, ginger
and apricot, parmigiano-reggiano cheese and with orange and toasted hazelnuts.
I've used blanched asparagus in salads with light and flavorful vinaigrettes.

asparagus until tender. Thin spears should roast between 10 and 12 minutes. Roast
thicker spears up to 15 minutes.
Tips on storing
I get the asparagus home the first thing I do is cut 1/4" off the stalks
and stand them in lukewarm water. I want them to stand this way at least 30 -45
minutes before I use them. I don't buy asparagus unless I know I'm going to use
it within a day or two. If I'm going to cook the asparagus in water I do very
carefully rinse it in lukewarm water. When I'm planning on roasting asparagus
I do not rinse it. If you do choose to rinse it make sure that you dry it thoroughly
so the olive oil will stick to the stalks and tips.
