Did you know if you bend the stalks, they will break off naturally where they should - to separate the tough part from the edible part!? Amazing how simple God makes things for us sometimes huh?
This is easy and delicious - hope you give it a try.
3 Tb. brown sugar
2 Tb. butter
2# fresh asparagus, cut into 2" pieces
(about 4 cups)
1 cup chicken broth
In skillet over medium-high, heat brown sugar and butter
until sugar is dissolved: add asparagus; saute for 2 minutes.
Stir in chicken broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat;
cover and simmer for 8 - 10 minutes or until
asparagus is crisp-tender. Remove to a serving
dish and keep warm. Cook leftover sauce in pan,
uncovered, for a few minutes, until reduced by half.
Pour over asparagus and serve immediately.
Yield: 4 - 6 servings
I always say, if you want your kids to eat their veggies,
add a little sweetness and they'll go down a lot faster.
