I love asparagus and this recipe spoke to me right off when I read the ingredients. Mom gave me The City Tavern Cookbook for Christmas and we agreed to try a recipe or two each week. This is one.

Thomas Jefferson had a large crop of asparagus and this was a recipe that was used widespread. It is said that he had this served whenever he had guests. I can see why.
