This month look for this wonderfully, flavorful vegetable at your local farmer’s market. Asparagus packs in a ton of good vitamins and minerals in those stalks! Steam it, pickle it, sauté it, roast it — the possibilities are endless!
When buying asparagus, choose stalks that are bright green with purple shaded tight tips; these are the most tender and tasty. It is best to cook it soon after buying, because asparagus can become tough and woody after several days.
