Fresh Steamed Asparagus

With fresh asparagus, the higher your income the higher up the stalk you cut off the tip. - by Bill Rather

A lot of people do not like asparagus but I think it is one of those foods you like when you get older and your tasted buds change and you like vegetables less sweet like corn. I did not like asparagus while growing up the few times we had it since it was an expensive food item however, I do not. I also like to put garlic with it.

Steaming makes even tough asparagus, tender and tasty!

Original recipe yield: 4 servings.


· 1 bunch asparagus spears
· 1 teaspoon butter
· 1/4 teaspoon salt
· 3 cups water


1. Place water in the bottom half of a steamer pan set. Add salt and butter, and bring to a boil.
2. Trim the dry ends off of the asparagus. If the spears are thick, peel them lightly with a vegetable peeler. Place them in the top half of the steamer pan set. Steam for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus, or until asparagus is tender.
