Lemon Asparagus

About 3 years ago I planted asparagus crowns. This is the year that the beds will be established enough to harvest. The flavor of freshly picked asparagus is so delightful. It's best prepared with a minimum of seasoning so the flavor of the vegetable can come through.



Drop the spears in boiling water until just tender, about 3 minutes.

Squeeze lemon juice over spears and add butter.

Allow butter to melt.

Add lemon zest and salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with lemon rinds. Serve immediately.


Time to prepare: 15 minutes.
