Pencil Asparagus
  • Description

    Loaded with all the same full-flavored earthiness as regular asparagus, this thinner variety packs a satisfyingly sweet crunch with every bite. The tender, grassy-green stalks offer instant elegance to any meal and can even be eaten raw as a snack. When cooked, the pencil-thin asparagus develops pleasant notes of toasted almonds, artichoke, and butter. We like to pair with other springtime delicacies like wild ramps and fiddlehead ferns, and then serve with some grilled salmon with a side of tabbouleh.
