Thumbs up Fresh Asparagus

Well today here in Michigan I picked my first batch of asparagus fresh from the field. It looks incredible. So I thought how to cook it. So I got one of my big cast iron skillets out added some fresh butter my wife makes and garlic crushed and melted butter and added garlic let it cook for a minute and put the asparagus in and continued to fry for about 5 minutes. WOW was it GREAT! Just one of the early spring things I love Thought you folks would enjoy this. Michigan Asparagus is one of the best things up here to eat full of flavor. Thanks Digger

I do very little to aspargus. Cookk it it an aspargus pan and serve it with a little salt & pepper - yum. You can roast it with olive oil, salt & pepper as well.

I love creamed asparagus over toast.
Cut it into bite sized pieces, cook it like you did with butter, add some flour and some milk when it's done and make your creamed gravy. Pour over toasted bread.

Digger, do what you did, and mix it with some sort of pasta!

Homemade butter???? Where do you live - I'm coming over!

The creamed asparagus sounds great! I like to rub the spears with olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper, then grill them. A spash of sherry vinegar is nice.

Asparagus omelettes, with or without fresh mushrooms and a bit of onion.
