We love asparagus this time of the year and live in West Brookfield MA where we have an annual Asparagus festival, this year, May 18 on the town common. I baked asparagus last PM as outlined in the video, quite tasty, thanks.

Save the water used to clean asparagus or any vegetable, rather than having it go down the drain. Use it to rinse dishes or whatever your creativity tells you.
