Asparagus

I love asparagus, as I have said before one of my favourite memories is going to buy asparagus as a treat from the local farm when I was very little. Asparagus is wonderful and is actually a member of the lily family. It contains more folic acid than other vegetables and also is a great source of potassium, vitamins A and C and fibre. It great in many dishes but is equally good served on it’s own with salt and pepper then dipped into egg yolks.
