Blanched Asparagus

Asparagus might be even tastier cold than it is hot.  It makes a pretty  addition to a simple salad.

Bring salted water to a boil.  Then, add asparagus.  Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.  When you start to smell asparagus, let it cook for about another 30 seconds.  Then, immediately drain out the water.  It should still be firm and delicately crisp.  To serve warm, serve immediately.  Or, to serve it chilled,  cover asparagus in cold water.  Let sit for 2 minutes.  Drain and chill in the fridge.

Eat me.
