Photo of the Day – June 14, 2010: Cedar Hill Farm/Kernan Farms
Imagine a forest of giant asparagus spears just next to a lake of drawn butter. That’s what I did when I saw this lovely community of fresh green stalks from Cedar Hill Farm/Kernan Farms at the Greenmarket. Asparagus season is another of my favorite times of year. I make plans for asparagus soup, roasted asparagus, asparagus tarts, and many other delights, but my bunches never make it beyond a quick steam and a splash of lemon juice. It just seems silly to do anything more with something so perfect as it is, don’t you think?
