Recipe Notes

Hopefully we’ll still have the gorgeous Mediterranean vegetable until mid-July. The family has been grown asparagus plants since the 80′s and now has 50 miles of continuous rows that is harvested by hand! No need to break off the steams of this produce — it is cut above ground so all of the stalk is green and tender.
