Raw Asparagus is Delicious!

20 Apr

Raw Asparagus from the Garden

I said in one of my previous posts that I don’t like to eat asparagus raw… I have to take that back! My friend Victoria and her husband gave us fresh asparagus from their garden. It was tender, sweet and almost creamy – so unlike the woodsy, fibrous ones I buy.

    Yes! Raw asparagus fresh from the garden is fabulous. My kids have even eaten it raw because FRESH picked tastes so completely different than other asparagus. It takes at least 3 years of growth in the ground before you can harvest asparagus…gotta plant mine now for a 2014 harvest!
