    White Asparagus With Parmesan (Serves 2)

    8-10 white asparagus spears (medium thickness)
    real Parmesan cheese, grated
    Heavy cream or table cream
    1/2 tsp. cornstarch

    Peel white asparagus and remove the more fibrous butt ends.

    In a ten inch frying pan, add about one inch of boiling water or enough to cover the peelings and ends as well as the 8-10 spears of white asparagus. Bring back to boil and simmer covered until the spears are tender. This will take at least twice as long as for green asparagus, perhaps more than fifteen minutes.

    Remove white asparagus spears, pat dry, and keep warm in dish in oven. Now reduce liquid in pan. You may leave peelings and ends in water until the liquid becomes insufficient to protect them from burning. Strain liquid. If quantity more that 1/2 cup, return to pan and reduce to between 1/4 and 1/2 cup. The more concentrated the liquid, the more intense the flavour of your sauce will be.

    Now add an equal quantity of cream to the liquid. We use table or coffee cream with about 1/2 tsp. of cornstarch (mix cornstarch first with cream before adding to liquid). Do NOT let the mixture boil. Heat until slightly thickened.

    Spoon sauce over the warm white asparagus spears. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and then place under the broiler until golden. Watch carefully to avoid burning.

    TAG: I've always enjoyed white asparagus with hollandaise sauce, but your recipe for white asparagus with parmesan sounds just as decadent without being as complicated. I'm going to try it soon! ¬°Gracias!

    I appreciate the trolls; without them, we wouldn't get all these great recipes.

    DMW - I just ran across this recipe a couple weeks ago and fell in love with it. It was also the first time I tried white asparagus. Unfortunately, I thought it was like green asparagus and that the skinner ones would be the best so they ended up being too skinny to peel and therefore were too stringy when eaten. Next time I know to get the mid-thickness ones.

    Or you could knock the aforementioned troll unconscious and let the BGG snack on him for a while. Just a thought.

    Might be a good idea since nearly all goats, billy or otherwise are omnivores.
