Years ago my wife and I were hosting a camp ground. A camper showed me this recipe.
Take off the tough bottom part of the asparagus. If you take a stalk and grab it near the bottom of the stalk then up towards the middle then just snap it. That is usually where they should be cut to get rid of the tough part. Some of the tough part maybe useable if you want to peel it until you get to the tender part or you can use those parts in a soup . I usually buy two bunches for the two of us.
Two bunches of asparagus –rinse & let dry
Drizzle with EVOO
salt & pepper to taste
garlic powder sprinkle lightly
put on grill, griddle or fry pan lightly brown all over keep turning
Put them in bunches on foil put a couple of teaspoons of salsa on top and seal them tight
Place back on the grill for several minutes -you just want to steam them with the salsa for a little while – I would say 4 to 5 minutes keep your flame down low.
You may have to make some adjustments
Hope you enjoy. We sure do.
I’m sorry folks this is how I learned how to fix them.
