A Note From Emily Corliss
Asparagus is one of those incredibly versatile ingredients that is so great for beginner cooks and experienced chefs alike. It can be shaved raw into salads, pureed into a soup, peeled and blanched to preserve that bright green color, or simply roasted or grilled to bring out that smoky flavor. While it is available all year-round, asparagus really shines in Spring and early Summer. The skinny, pencil-stalks contain less water than the larger variety, so look for these for quick cooking methods such as grilling or roasting. But don’t pass up the jumbo and colossal varieties, which are actually more tender than their skinny counterparts, and are great for slightly blanching and providing that sweet flavor and great crunch!
