In Season... "spear grass"

Asparagus is a great veg choice to accompany healthy main dishes. Having just purchased some for $1.99 / lb I assume it's a high supply time of year for the growers. Steamed, grilled or stir fried - it's good stuff and very good for you as well:

(Look at that potassium level - good for fast reflexes! set that hook!!)

It must be in season somewhere, but not around here. Our asparagus season is from about mid-April to early June. But, it's an incredible veggie . . . we can hardly wait each year.

It is probably my all-time favorite veggie. Where can you get it this time of year at $1.99/lb. I used to grow it, until I started SWFF, and could get it thru the end of August. Try it sometime with pan-fried slivered almonds. I'm always amazed how fast the asparagus pee vapors appear.

Either hothouses or south america, but they were g-o-o-d (and cheap)

Also the wild sockeye is still coming in real fresh over at Costco... they start to run in June as well. It's gotta be a late sockeye year, which might factor into the fewer larger coho reports from the Olympic Peninsula (ocean currents shifting etc). I think I will vaccuum pack one for a mid-winter treat.

(Good to see that wild sockeye ranks low in the toxin chart)
