Directions

  1. Thoroughly rinse asparagus spears.
  2. Place 1/8 cup of water in an 11" by 7" pyrex baking pan.
  3. Break off tough stems and place spears in pan in alernating order with the larger pieces at the outside.
  4. Cook for minimum amount of time, based on your cooking guide (I am lucky, my 20 year plus oven has an autocook setting that I can use to cook things like asparagus along with many other things.) When finshed splash with a small amount of fresh (not re-consituted) lemon juice.
