Asparagus Farming!

Today I am excited to be heading into Norfolk County where I am going to learn all about asparagus farming! So excited for this learning opportunity, and for the samples.

Check out one of our favourite pairings for Ontario pork and asparagus:

Cooking Instructions

  1. Wash and break asparagus stalks where they snap easily; discard ends. Dry and toss with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bundle 3 spears together; wrap 1 piece of prosciutto around asparagus.
