Kitchen Satori

My father-in-law, Bill, was visiting one spring. Before dinner I was trimming asparagus with my chef's knife. A twinkle danced into his eye as he spoke:

"Oh, Ho! There is something I can show you about asparagus. Rather than cut the stalk, grasp it at either end and break it in two. It will always break at the point where the stalk turns tough."

Asparagus -- great gift of Asia Minor -- are even better now!
