Recipe for Gardeners: Cooking Asparagus Spears

I know an awful lot about plants. I know precious little about cooking. Could the old adage be true?...

Serves 4

Tarragon’s affinity for asparagus and berries shines in this dish.

• 1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus
• 1 1/2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 1/4 to 1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon (or chervil)
• Salt and pepper to taste

1. Rinse and trim the asparagus.

2. Steam it for 2 to 5 minutes or until barely tender.

3. Drain and place it in a shallow serving bowl.

4. Add the remaining ingredients, rolling the spears to coat them.

5. Serve warm or cold.
