Out of everything we received in our first share, the asparagus is what had me the most worried. When we saw it, Gerry's reaction was "Great! Asparagus!" My reaction was more like "Crap. I have to eat ASPARAGUS? Already?"
But I promised I'd try it all, so try it I did. Gerry steamed it and had it all cut up in small pieces with plenty of butter.
Reaction? Upon taking the first bite, my first thought was, "It tastes like corn or popcorn or something." That might have been the butter. After a bit of chewing, when I actually tasted asparagus, it was a little weird for me. That was one of the tips. So next I tried some of the stem, and I was a lot more into that. I'm not quite an asparagus fan yet, but I will keep at it. Next time I think I want less butter, though. It was awfully rich.
Gerry on the other hand declared it the best asparagus he ever had!
