PREPARING AND COOKING WHITE ASPARAGUS
Although I rarely see white asparagus when out and about, I saw these while shopping at the West Side Market a few days ago. Two bunches for five dollars! Great price. I asked the vendor the best way to cook them and he said, “grill them – that’s the best way – just olive oil – put olive oil on them – grill them and they’re great – the best way”. He further said, “don’t knock them around in the bag – they break easy”.
