Fresh Produce Tuesday- Week #1: Asparagus

With all of the great spring produce starting to show up in stores, I wanted to add a new series to 2 Sisters 2 Cities called Fresh Produce Tuesday.  Each Tuesday, I will feature a new type of produce and highlight 10-15 recipes that incorporate this ingredient.  I will also post a linky tool so other bloggers can add their own post that includes this fruit or vegetable.  Whenever possible, I will try to feature in-season, organic, and local produce.  Even if you have never made one of these items, I encourage you to join in and perhaps use it as an opportunity to learn a new cooking skill!

I picked Tuesday to have this series as this day of the week has historically been a day I have associated with fresh produce. When I lived in the city, my Boston Organics delivery arrived every Tuesday. I also almost always used to visit the Copley Square Farmers Market (one of Boston’s largest farmer’s market) on Tuesdays and Fridays.

To give you a heads up on the produce I will be featuring, here is my editorial calendar for the following early spring crops:

Today (March 27th): Asparagus
April 3rd: Artichokes
April 10th: Spring Onions
April 17th: Peas
April 24th: Garlic Scapes

For our first Fresh Produce Tuesday, here are some great sounding recipes featuring asparagus:

Now it’s your turn to share a recipe that you have made which includes asparagus.  Please link up below- the post can be new or old.  It would be great if you could link back to 2 Sisters 2 Cities or add our button to your asparagus post (our button can be found on the top of the right-hand column), but it is not required.  Please link up even if your recipe is similar to one of the recipes posted above- it’s always great to see various pictures of a dish.  If you don’t have a blog, feel free to try out any of these recipes and/or click the “like” link on any that sounds particularly appetizing to you!
