We are seeing the tips of our asparagus peeking out through the mulch, which means Spring is here. One of the best uses of this abundant vegetable is Sylvia Beach's Cream of Asparagus Soup. Have a safe and fun summer - looking forward to seeing everyone soon!

    Ingredients:

    • 1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
    • 2/3 cup Chopped Onion
    • 2 cups Cut Asparagus
    • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
    • 1/8 tsp Ground Mace
    • 2 tbsp Butter
    • 2 tbsp Flour

    Preparation:

    1. In a saucepan, combine the chicken broth, chopped onion, asparagus with the lemon juice and mace. Bring mixture to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8 minutes. Place half of the mixture into a blender or food processor. Cover and blend 30-60 seconds or until smooth. Pour into bowl. Repeat with remaining asparagus mixture; set aside.
    2. In the same saucepan, melt the butter. Blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Add the milk all at once. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in the blended vegetable mixture. Cook and stir until soup is heated through. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
