Notes

Helpful tips
  • A good way to make sure the woody part of the asparagus is removed, is to break it off with your hands. Here's how I do it: I hold my two hands close to the ends of the asparagus and apply pressure. The woody part should snap off easily from the good part of the asparagus.
  • I do cut the rest of the asparagus in 2 - 3 inch pieces.
  • If you don't have shallots, a good alternative is vidalia onions since they are sweet. Use a large onion or two small to medium ones.
