Sometimes, a few stalks will grow bent right from the very beginning. They never straighten out. They taste just as good.

My husband thought he didn’t care for asparagus. Since we have had a decent amount this year of it from our garden, he has learned that fresh asapargus is delicious. Our favorite way to have it is roate with olive oil and garlic. I roasted some yesterday morning for breakfast (there were only three stalks ripe that day, so I had the asparagus!) and had them in my crepes. (The children had pear butter in theirs).

Actually, my favorite way to enjoy it is nearly as you’ve described: briefly par-boiled, then either grilled or broiled with a light vinaigrette of garlic, lemon, and olive oil. It’s truly a favorite. Of course, raw works, too.

With its slender stalks and glossy sheen all drizzled in oil who can resist that.
Thanks for the photo compliments. It’s easy when the models are so lovely.
