Asparagus - Picked & Pickled

We have been so busy here with the last few weeks of school, junior varsity baseball, taking trucks to the repair shop, and so on. Making dinner hasn't happened a lot which means our asparagus needs some alternatives to grilling as a side dish.

Last week I had some that had been picked for a few days so I wasn't sure of its quality for grilling, so I made cream of asparagus soup. Wow was it good.

Today Grace, Jared, and I picked a fresh batch and we pickled them
within a half hour. We used.a little of Uncle Johns pickled pepper juice and plan to serve them with some pickled eggs later this summer.

And darn if a few odds and ends were left over, so I cooked them and ate them!
