What a fucking rip off
Where on the packet does it say that 2/3 of it is inedible
but it's really good
It is pricey, mind you.
I tell you what, i murder all my veg and so it's all stringy and stuff by the time I've boiled it. Put a big of butter on it though and there you go, you're flying on an asparagus dream.
and peel the bottom half if it's quite thick
cook it on the griddle pan
AND the asparagus pffffnarrrrrrrrrrrr
also it's not really something you can chop up and add to a vegetable dish is it. just has to be a main focus urgh
asparagus is a very selfish vegetable
It's a bit like hosting a relative you haven't seen for ages, you have to give up your routine for them and dedicate some attention, you can't be complacent with asparagus
this may be a dodgy analogy but fuck you
someone's just made it up.
babybels and broccoli
direct from a farm. Had it too much recently, need some new recipe to spice it up a little bit.
it had been in the fridge for over a month. It tasted absolutely vile, like chemicals.
it was the fancy white asparagus too
I just really like asparagus, alright?
And Iw as convinced it was the dodgy asparagus. But then it turned out to be the high sorbitol content of the ice pops I was bingeing on
Made my piss smell utterly rank for about 18 hours, mind
asparagus is the prescribed remedy for people whose partner doesn't like the taste of their semen.
Went to aspRagus festival two weeks ago and ad it for dins tonight. Pee stinks
My gf introduced me to it. Can't think why...
To trim off the inedible part, just bend it very gently until you find the snapping point, then snap it. Either throw the hard stalky bit away or use it to make soup or stock.
It's good with pretty much everything, particularly fish - here in Thailand we stir-fry it with shrimp which is fucking awesome. And it's good pretty much on its own, steamed or grilled and accompanied with a bit of good olive oil, salt & pepper & a sprinkling of parmesan, or a nice hollandaise sauce. My personal favourite is to wrap it in pancetta, douse it in olive oil & whack it in the oven.
SNAP. 3/4 of it goes in the bin. Cause who's gonna make stock out of it, really
only a quid a bunch or so from a greengrocer. You get a lot for your money I reckon, just snap the end of and shave the sides a bit and you are ready to go. I love how big and juicy they are. They make piss smell rank though.
Fry some chorizo, chop up the asparagus into inch-long sections, fry for two or three minutes along with the chorizo, stir in some cooked pasta, serve with parmezan and lemon juice.
It's the BEST.
it's expensive and sometimes wasteful and a faff doesn't even really taste of anything nice OR bulk a meal out
have some proper veg instead.
Great! Can actually eat the full thing now.
Asparagus wee.....oh come on
