Cooking asparagus – the non-easy way

From a Guardian article by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Bring me my spears, on growing and cooking asparagus:

From "Bring me my spears", by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Now I’m not a chef, but it strikes me that by the time you’ve done all that to your asparagus, it’ll be massively overcooked.

    I totally agree with you. Perhaps he is not using lovely fresh ones from his garden but old mankey ones from Spain!

      Maybe that’s true – but one thing we can be sure of, they’ll be old and manky by the time he’s finished with them.

    Having had canned asparagus, this can only improve it.

      I suggest only eating asparagus in season, dont cook for too long and put masses of hot butter on them!

        And I’ll second that suggestion. The stuff really is astoundingly delicious when done properly.
