I cooked my asparagus in the oven, tossed in a little oil salt and pepper (the way we always cook it). On tasting the maple-mustard sauce, I decided it was just a bit sweet for us and added in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the half recipe I'd made of it. That worked well for us. Thanks for posting.

Loved the sauce! I steamed my asparagus instead of cooking it in boiling water. Otherwise made as posted. Everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing!

Did you know there's an They want to spread the good word about the virtues of asparagus. Very thorough, but the only thing left out was that asparagus is an excellent food that easily lets nature take its course. Srsly. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
