    Mille®'s Note:

    This soup is wonderful served hot or cold. Half & half or milk may be substituted for the cream if fat content is a concern, although it won't taste quite as good.

      So when I buy asparagus and prepare it for dinner and perform the "hold the bottom and bend it til it snaps" to ensure I only use the best part for dinner I am often left with a pieces up to 4-inches long and just can't seem to throw them out. So trim off the supertough part and then flash freeze them and put them into bags. And when I have several bags that seem to add up to a bunch or so of asparagus I use them to make soup. Tonight short on time and while rifling through the freezer tossing bag after bag of asparagus ends aside, I thought it was time to whip up a quick soup. So to recipezaar, oops food.com, I go and find this wonderful recipe. Followed it exactly -- love the thyme and white pepper combo -- and used the advice of substituting condensed milk for some of the cream. Okay the straining part is a bit of a pain when using the tougher ends of asparagus but other than that this soup was really good and the flash frozen asparagus ends made a lovely soup that fed a family of four for a very economical price. Thanks for posting Mille -- great recipe added to my main cookbook.

      Doubled recipe, and used 2 1/4 lbs asparagus as that is the bundle size i buy. Followed sugggestion of condensed skim milk in lieu of cream. What a treat! Making 3rd batch in 2 weeks now, we can't get enough.

      Great soup! After making this, I agree and would cut the thyme like other posters suggest. I didn't have celery, so I used a little celery seed and celery salt.
