Homegrown Asparagus!

Kahuna's homegrown asparagus!  How cool is that?
Anyone have any favorite ways to serve it?

What pretty asparagus!!! That is something I have never been able to grow.
How do I like to fix them? Barely steamed. Like almost raw. I boil water in my teapot and pour the boiling water over the asparagus in the skillet. Let it sit a couple minutes and sprinkle with kosher salt and eat, with my fingers. :)I don't really like any of my vegetables cooked anymore.
Very pretty though.

Looks like your Kahuna has that magic touch Lynn. Kudos!!!

Growing straight and slim asparagus is no easy task. It's been many, many years since I left my Asparagus bed:)

I don't know if you will be able to view this but, I have an entire board on Pinterest devoted to Asparagus. Perhaps you will find it inspiring:)

Thanks for sharing, here's the link:

Thanks for your instructions, Farm Girl. And Louise -- your pinterest board is amazing! I will have to spend some serious time over there, checking out all the goodies. I just bought the ice cream sundae book you recommended on your blog, by the way. Because I really did need an ice cream sundae book :)

Yummy! I love to toss asparagus with olive oil and salt & pepper then roast at 400 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. So delicious!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! :)

That is a beautiful sight, I so wish it was in my yard! Olive oil and oven roasting is my fav, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it any way you make it:@)

We love asparagus brushed with butter and balsamic vinegar, grilled, then sprinkled w/ sea salt just before eating. Yum!

Mmm, all these methods sound so yummy. This year's crop is about done, but I'm thinking we might need to buy more so we can try the butter/vinegar/grill method.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, Lynn - it's so nice to meet you! The name of your book has me really intrigued; I'll have to check it out. I love asparagus in just about any way, but mainly roasted with olive oil or grilled & then brushed with butter and fresh lemon.

I make a simple but delicious asparagus soup. It's creamy without any dairy ingredients. Low fat too. Recipe is on my Bear Cupboard blog (

Melanie, butter and fresh lemon sounds delightful with asparagus. And I hope you do get a chance to check out Queen of the Castle :) Amazon has it, and so do some libraries . . . book stores can order it, too.
And Judy, I am going to run over and check out your low-fat asparagus soup recipe right now. From the sound of it, I like it already! Thanks for leaving the link.
