    cipherbabe's Note:

    I have tried a variety of asparagus recipes over the years--sauteed, grilled, baked--and I have always been disappointed in the results. This is a simple boiled recipe that always gives me a nicely textured and tasty asparagus.

      This is a great way to cook and eat asparagus! I'e been using a smilar method for years and never burns or turns bitter like some baking methods do. Sometimes I use olive oil instead of butter. Tender and delicious!
