These are "asperge" :
How to use them ?
Rinse the "asperges".
Cut the bottom so they all have the same length.
Cooking methods :
1. Boiled "aspeges":
Bring salted water to the boil.
When it boils, put the "aspeges" in the pan and cook for 15 minutes at least (between 15 and 20 minutes depending on the size of the asparagus).
The "asperges" are cooked when smooth (you can easily pick them with a fork or a knife).
2. Steamed "asperges" :
Cooking time is the same.
3. Asperges « sauté » :
Very tasty, you can use butter or olive oil. In a saucepan, melt the butter / heat up the oil, cook the "asperes" (low heat) for 10
minutes. Check the "asperges" with a knife. When they're cooked, they're smooth.
How do we eat them ?
Most of the time, we eat « asperges » as an entrée, hot or cold as you want. Enjoy your asperges with a « sauce salade » only.
