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:
Yield: Serves 6
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
36 thin spears fresh Ontario asparagus (about 1 bunch)
Salt and pepper
12 thin slices prosciutto (some specialty meat shops make their own from Ontario pork)
- 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.
- Place bundles on greased grill over medium to medium-high heat; grill, turning occasionally, until asparagus is bright green and tender and prosciutto is crisp, about 5 minutes. Drizzle bundles with olive oil.
