Preparing Asparagus

Have you ever eaten asparagus raw? Just cut off an inch or 2 of the hard stalk at the bottom before washing and enjoy! 

For cooked asparagus, try cooking them in the oven. Lay the stalks side-by-side on a baking sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. For extra flavor, add a little minced garlic and roast them until lightly browned and tender for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
