    I have made thuis recipe for years. It was in the paper when we still lived in Milwaukee. However I do not throw out the asparagus bottoms, but simmer them in the chicken broth with a bay leaf while the rest is getting ready. I then use the strained broth to complete the recipe. it does make a difference Koechin

    It was simple yet flavorful, I added turmeric and marjoram, but nothing was really needed.
