Our favorite Spring vegetable is here! If you are a true asparagus aficionado, you probably eat it at least twice a day while it's in season! Try this creative twist on braised asparagus.
Asparagus with Anchovies and Garlic
1 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
4 large cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
2 bunches asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 - 3 TBS water
2 teaspoons anchovy paste, or 1 anchovy fillet, minced
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add asparagus, water and anchovy; cook, stirring often, until the asparagus is tender-crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. From eatingwell.com
Fresh, local, organic asparagus is coming to you from the following farms:
Sweeter Song Farm, Cedar Girarden Farm, Traverse City

Quote of the Week
"The industrial eater is, in fact, one who does not know that eating is an agricultural act, who no longer knows or imagines the connections between eating and the land, and who is therefore necessarily passive and uncritical — in short, a victim.
