4/27/14.  It’s asparagus season! Maryland’s very own Eastern shore is the perfect environment for growing great quality asparagus.

Segment 1:  When preparing asparagus, you will want to: wash it well and discard the stem at the point where it naturally snaps off near the base. Place it into a sink of cold water to soak out the dirt, sand, etc. and remember to change the water a few times. When working with thicker asparagus, peel the very outside part very gently.
