How to cook asparagus so that it tastes good?

Asparagus season is one of those times of the year that we can hardly wait. We love asparagus. In the farm shops in Bavaria there is mostly asparagus from the Bavarian asparagus regions around Schrobenhausen, Abensberg or Straubing. The sandy soils between Landshut and Ingolstadt provide the nutty aroma of the asparagus. We make sure that it comes from these regions if possible. Then it is the freshest. We also eat sustainably, as this is the shortest way to travel. But how can you cook asparagus so that it really develops its taste? How long does asparagus have to cook? The unexpected answer: it's best not to cook it at all. This time we tried a tip for asparagus preparation that we saw on a TV cooking show. This sounded exciting. So I wanted to try it out once.

For this type of preparation, peel the asparagus and cut off the ends until you get the juicy part. The asparagus pieces are placed in baking paper. Spread butter on the asparagus pieces. Then you fold the paper around the asparagus and pack the asparagus pieces. These packages are placed on a baking sheet and put in the oven for about 15 minutes at 200 degrees. This will turn the asparagus ends slightly brown. The asparagus itself, on the other hand, is tender as butter. You can add a lemon wedge, but we didn’t. We wanted to taste the intense asparagus flavor. This method of asparagus preparation is perfect if you want to taste the asparagus unadulterated. If you cook it in salt water, it loses its intense taste.

How long does asparagus have to cook?

How long asparagus has to cook depends on the thickness of the asparagus stalks. We had fresh asparagus up to two centimeters thick. I read on a blog that oven asparagus has to stay in the oven for up to 45 minutes. I cannot confirm this. We left it in the oven for a good quarter of an hour at 200 degrees. That was enough to make the asparagus tender.

What goes well with asparagus?

You can of course serve asparagus with ham and hollandaise sauce. It's a light lunch. However, it doesn't last long. This time we fried a pork chop instead, which we served with cranberries. We also prepared a couple of potato pancakes as a side dish. This makes the dish more substantial and ensures that you are not hungry two hours after consuming asparagus. When asked how to cook asparagus, we definitely discovered a new method. We will certainly use these more often in the future.
