  • Asparagus is one of the early-season crops you will find available in the fresh produce section of local grocery stores.
    Harvested during April and May in Kentucky, asparagus is a nutrient-dense vegetable that you can eat raw, lightly boil, steam, stir-fry or grill. It can be seasoned with herbs, butter or Parmesan cheese to enhance its flavor. As you will see in the Plate It Up Kentucky Proud recipe below, it can also be an integral ingredient in many dishes.
