Asparagus is the vegetable that most signals the arrival of Spring to me—its arrival means other green goodies are not far behind! A member of the lily family, asparagus is nutrient-dense—high in folic acid and a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin. Look for firm, fresh, spears with closed, compact tips and uniform diameter, so that all spears will cook in the same amount of time. I like to "hammer" my spears following Gina DePalma's instructions—so simple and delicious.
