What to do with asparagus ends
I am a member of a food co-op and one of the offerings in the last pick-up frame was very inexpensive asparagus. I finished blanching, bagging, freezing them last night and still have to figure out what to do with the stem ends that I kept. This afternoon we had some spears for lunch. They are pretty tasty but are much stringier/tougher than what I expected. Oh well.
So what I would like to know is what others do with stem ends.. I have 6.33 lbs. soup? stock? (pressure canned of course) '?' ___Recipes please!!____ Nothing that has to be frozen though. I had a very tough time finding enough crannies and corners for all the half pound vacuum packed bags of spears. I have got to learn to stop buying stuff just because it is on sale! ..sigh..
