It's such a shame but the asparagus season is slowly winding down with only a few weeks left to enjoy. There's still plenty around so I am cooking and eating as much as I can and today heading to the asparagus farm to buy more. My local farmer has gorgeous big, fat spears for sale but often also has a box at the back full of twisted, mishapen ones. These are the ones I am after today, not only are they much cheaper, these are the ones I can cook now for eating later in the year.
It is best to eat the tips now to enjoy them at their best then preserve the rest of the stalk as you can see in these simple recipes for eating later in the year
