Ahh another sign of spring - A very special fresh treat. We grew asparagus many years ago. They do emerge from the soil as these alien looking "probes" and as they get tall (way beyond the picking stage) they branch out into a plant similar to the bushy asparagus fern many of us pot. It certainly took a ton of the asparagus roots to get enough shoots to harvest and eat. Ok, now how shall I cook them probably just a quick steam.
