Purple Asparagus

It is without a doubt one of my favorite vegetables. This beautiful variety of asparagus is purple and cooks to a dark green color. I was lucky enough to get some of the first of the season, no doubt in part due to warm weather. Carl Skalak from Blue Pike Farm gifted them to me when he came to dinner. Thanks Carl. These beauties were actually grown at Carl’s farm on E. 72nd Street in Cleveland. If this is any indication it is going to be a great year. For me just steamed for a few minutes is all I want to do with asparagus. What is your favorite recipe?
