    Jann Edwards's Note:

    This has become our favorite asparagus recipe. It comes from a small book titled Totally Garlic Cookbook. I use regular chicken broth and omit the salt and the grated skin of the lemon. It tastes wonderful hot or cold, but is not as garlicky as you would imagine with a head of garlic in there.

      Jann all I can say is WOW!!!!!!! We love garlic and when I saw the amount used in this recipe I knew it was right up my alley. The lemon zest at the end gave the asparagus just the right zing. This was soooooooooo easy to pull together and very quick to make. Thanks Jann!
