The peak season for fresh asparagus lasts from February through June.
Wash thoroughly under cool water to remove dirt or grit. Cut off tough ends.
Grilling is an excellent, easy way to cook asparagus. Simply add spears to grill for 3 to 5 minutes for a great addition to your salad or a simple, healthy side.
Immerse clean stalks in boiling water, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes—until they are bright green. Toss with olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
