Did you know that Massachusetts grows some of the best asparagus in the whole world? Now is the time to enjoy it! To prepare it, gently break off the cut ends of the spears where they break naturally. Then enjoy it raw, or steam it quickly – just until the spears are tender and the color is still bright. You can also grill asparagus or stir-fry it with a small amount of oil, garlic, and soy sauce. Enjoy fresh asparagus now.
