12 Recipes for the Asparagus Lover in All of Us

March 20, 2018

For some people, it’s Christmas. For others, it’s the languid days of summer. Still others prefer the crisp promise of fall’s fresh start. Not me. For me, it’s all about asparagus season. I await the early wisps of spring with intensity, eager to get my hands on those sweet, vegetal stalks. The window for the best of the bunch is short (March through June with a peak in April), so get in early and stay late. If it's still a bit too chilly for asparagus in your neck of the woods, then go ahead and bookmark these recipes and whip them out when the time is right—you won't regret it.

Love asparagus! Blanch it, shock it, bag it! Eat it right from the bag or squeeze of lemon on a salad! They are stars on their own!
