I have never liked asparagus. Every now and then I try it, and say "maybe this time I will like it." But I never have.
And then I won't try it for awhile, 'cause what's the point?
Too bad asparagus is...super good for you.
I am determined to like it! Someday...
Tonight, I tried cooking it for the first time. I almost liked it...
Of course that might have something to do with the fact that I cooked it in bacon grease--my go-to cooking essential for any food that I think I might not like.
In a small saucepan...
1 tbsp bacon grease
cleaned/chopped fresh green beans and asparagus stalks
pinch of salt
dash each of oregano, garlic powder, onion powder
put on the lid and cook for awhile on medium heat, shaking/stirring occasionally
when almost done, add a squirt of mustard, stir well
It really wasn't bad. It didn't taste as bitter to me as it usually does. Some of the stalks were too tough to chew though...and I can't stand that. Like chewing sticks. Gross.
