It’s that time of year… fresh asparagus is plentiful; this is a recipe I tried out on Kenny, he approved. I love growing fresh herbs, French tarragon is among my favorites. Although tarragon is not winter hardy around here it grows lovely indoors. Be sure and check out my herb selection at the farmers market and pick yourself up a plant for your own herb gardens.


1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon


On a large plate, toss asparagus with oil, salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally and basting frequently with honey during the last 3 minutes. Sprinkle with tarragon.
