Asparagus is the darling of spring, emblematic of the very season, fleeting and fresh as morning. We picked the young spears and dropped them in a salt brine. They ferment for a short time only, and their freshness is preserved by the salty soaking.
An easy recipe for a crispy, spicy batch of garlic-and-dill pickled asparagus spears. If the first thing that popped into your head was “Bloody Mary!”, then you clearly you, dear reader, are awesome. *Now openly accepting brunch invitations
My first taste was with cocktails and just straight out of the jar. So, incredibly delicious. When I was in a more civilized mood I made a pretty salad, dotted with goat cheese and croutons before drizzling with some of the pickling juice. Umm wow!
