Wild Asparagus

Picked a bunch today. Amazing how fast they grow over night. Trimmed and blanched.

I love asparagus with big heads on them. There is so much more flavor in them than those skinny sickly looking ones in the stores. Send me a big plate please!

Gorgeous.


I picked a pound of lambs' quarters (quelites) today, after a good rain last night.

Nice. We used to pick tons of wild asparagus along the irrigation ditches in southern Idaho.

We're having the first half-dozen stalks from the garden tonight...with garlic and morels in a cream sauce over pasta.

Wild Asparagus

Now you just stop that, Bookbrat! Or I'll hit you with my pathetic skinny asparagus spear!

Mmm. Morels.

Dawglover--I am eating a lot of asparagus...ours is 10 days early...usually it doesn't come up until around the 15th. Asparagus grows 6-8 inches A DAY. After it is picked, it grows approximately 1/4" overnight in the fridge. Tomorrow I am test driving 3 recipes that use asparagus, including roasting it and dressing it with lemon-rosemary butter to go with baked rainbow trout. FWIW, wild and cultivated asparagus are genetically the same. I love asparagus. Since our season started early, we got a bonus--instead of 6 weeks, we will be harvesting asparagus for almost 8 weeks (cut off date is July 1 / 4) so that it can go to seed.

Basically, PF, that's what I have been living on since Sunday...if you don't count the double-smoked bacon.
