Tillen Farms Asparagus are grown and harvested during a short 6-8 week period in late spring. Within hours of picking, they have been sorted, cleaned, trimmed, blanched and then carefully hand packed in a mild pickle brine with a garlic clove to round out the flavor. The crispness is unique and the taste is exceptional. For best results, refrigerate before serving. Serving Suggestions: Serve chilled on a platter for delicious and healthy hors d'oeuvres; Place one stalk in a Bloody Mary for a classic stirrer; Wrap two to three asparagus stalks with slices of ham or prosciutto for a delicious appetizer or cocktail party snack; Add a little bit to garnish a Martini.
