Asparagus is a great variety. It goes well with almost all products. Asparagus can be added to salads and vegetables, meat, and fish, to prepare her soups and stews. It is often simply boiled and served with hollandaise sauce.

To blanch the asparagus, gently lower it into the boiling water and cook until it becomes bright green color. It usually takes 2-4 minutes, depending on the size (or diameter) of the stems. Count the blanching time as soon as water again begins to boil. Cook asparagus small 2, medium 3, and large 4 minutes.
