I love asparagus. When I was a young bride living in Bellville Michigan, there was a field full of asparagus where we would go and fill the backseat of the car with the tender green stalks as full as we could. Afterward, I would spend many happy hours preparing it for the freezer.
That was then. Now, unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near a field full of asparagus but I still love it so when it's on sale, I buy as much as the (store) law allows. My recent haul:
A couple of bunches were set aside to eat raw as snacks & to go into Mike's lunch. The rest will be put up for later meals.
With the tough ends snapped off & waiting to be blanched...
