This is a great side dish, especially for hot summer days when you want to make things in the cooler part of the day and have them on hand. It is a wonderful accompaniment to the Caramelized Vidalia Onion and Bacon Tart, along with a freshly sliced St. Helena Island tomato.


  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus or 2 (15-ounce) cans asparagus


If using fresh asparagus, place them on a round rack in the bottom of a Dutch oven or other round pot. Pour water in the bottom of the pot, but do not let the water reach the level of the rack. Place the pot over medium heat and bring the water to a boil. Cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and plunge the asparagus into a sink or bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking process.
