We got a little surprise at the Â Midtown Farmers Market yesterday. Only the second week in May, but Peter and Carmen had a few small bundles of asparagus. We almost missed them â€” it pays to make a couple of passes through the market.
The first asparagus of the year is always a cause for celebration. And simple treatment: I sautÃ©ed these spears briefly in olive oil and sprinkled them with sea salt. Nothing else needed.
