Asparagus is the quintessential spring delicacy – because of the way it grows, we can only enjoy it for a few months. A long-lived perennial, my grandmother's asparagus grew in the same patch for over 30 years. Each spring she would cut the new shoots before they were about eight inches tall, until early June, when she would stop harvesting and let them grow into bushy fernlike plants to feed the roots for another year. By the end of summer, they're about four feet tall, and the female plants develop small red berries, which are poisonous. Asparagus is easy to grow, but it takes patience – you won't be able to harvest for the first two years, in order to allow strong root development. White asparagus is produced by covering the plants so that they grow with no light, resulting in less bitterness.

Thanks a billion to @ediblesantafe for asking me to cook for their Women & Creativity event tonight @savoryspiceshop. Everyone really seemed to enjoy all the food and were genuinely interested in everything. Big thanks to the potters who made some incredible one of a kind plates for our food. This is one out of two dishes I made for the night: @santafefarmersmarket roasted purple and orange carrots with local bacon and a spicy Thai mayo sauce (using eggs from Santa Fe!) garnished with local daikon sprouts. Wontons were deep fried and super crunchy! 📸:@deadwolfbones #ediblenm #popup #popupdinner #pottery #wonton #carrots #eatlocal #santafe #newmexico #collaboration #simplysantafe #handmade #santafefarmersmarket
