It’s that time of year again! As the Germans call it, Spargelzeit! (I’ve never seen a culture so obsessed with asparagus…) The prices are coming down and the quality is going up. M helped me pick out a bunch of green and white so we could compare. Look for ones with dense, crisp tops. If the tops are slimy or pushed together they are not fresh. I love the thick, fresh spring ones!
We will enjoy them this evening with burgers. Tonight I will boil them (my parents used to have a special asparagus steamer) and then we will eat them with our fingers, dragging them in this sauce that I have always called, “Pink Sauce.”
M can make this from scratch now. It’s an easy sauce, and kids can start picking up on different flavors— if it needs more or less vinegar etc.
(Oh, and tomorrow we’ll eat the leftovers cold with just a little EVOO and white balsamic.)
