Here I am with a bowl of fresh asparagus. Not too big a deal EXCEPT that these are wild asparagus. They grow in the sand close to the Fraser River and my son-in-law found a batch when he was out walking.
We were surprised at how much he actually found.
I almost forgot to take a photo of them cooked. They were tender, mild in flavour and very good just fried lightly.
Even a little boy got to try some.
No one knows where the asparagus came from - perhaps seeds that some birds distributed. However they started growing where they did, you really have to look hard for them since the grasses that around are the same colour. Mother Nature has done a good job.
