Sounds delicious! Going to have to try it your way!


Oh hun, after the dire food in Belgium land this post has left me drooling! I got a blogging mention - grinning like a loon!


I'm only about 45 mins drive away from the Vale of Evesham. So I'm glad you're buying English asparagus!


I love Asparagus so too, I also discovered it very late in life at the ripe old age of 44...I remember trying it as a child and thinking it was disgusting and never wanting to eat it again. That was until I was offered some with home-made, buttery, Hollandiase sauce and I was hooked.
I'm really enjoying your blog, your pictures are gorgeous and you always find something interesting to tell. Thank you!


We love asparagus here too! Kids love it! Well, they eat the tips coz sometimes, stalks can be quite fibrous. Another way we do it is cut asparagus into 2-3 inch bits, fry some garlic, toss in 'stems' first, then toss tips in (as quicker to cook). Put a bit of oyster sauce and perhaps a pinch of sugar... then add a tin of white crab meat. Mix it so that crab meat's just nicely warm through. We have that with rice. Mmm. Don't get Tesco's own crab meat - not very nice. Sainsbury's or John West not too bad.


In all my 43 years I only tried asparagus last Christmas. I had never really fancied it, but it was the only starter I would remotely eat on the menu. I was so pleased it was, as I ended up really enjoying it. Served in the same way as you minus the lemon. x


I love asparagus too- we live slap bang in the middle of the Vale of Evesham where it grows madly, everywhere! We have a row at the allotment but it won't be prime for picking until next year. For now, like you, I am buying at the market or little road side stalls and enjoying it whilst I can. Brilliant pictures!

I am feeling the need to rush out to the farm shop before closing time.
