When I say that I love fresh asparagus, I'm not kidding. And for a shopping experience like this, I go right to the source -
a self-serve stand at Norconk Farm near Empire, Michigan.
With my bounty I will make asparagus soup (my super-easy recipe is here), roasted asparagus (with olive oil and sea salt) and even a healthy breakfast frittata (asparagus sauteed with grape tomatoes, spring onions and mushrooms).
This is seasonal eating at its finest. Enjoy!
