As I mentioned awhile back I am going to become a gardener one way or another. Since spring is FINALLY here we are in the beginning stages of an amazing garden!
We have two wild asparagus bushes in the ditch out by the road but with six people in our family, (all of which LOVE asparagus) two bushes are not enough.
Last fall my husband built an asparagus patch closer to our house.
Our favorite two ways to make asparagus are:
Wrap it in bacon and grill it
Spread the asparagus on a baking sheet, rub olive oil on them and sprinkle it with sea salt. Then throw it in the oven (375-400 degrees) for about 40 minutes flipping it half way through until it is crisp. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!
As we wait patiently for God to grace us with our own organic, home grown asparagus I thought I would share with you some recipes I have found that I am very excited to try.
