Thin vs. fat asparagus, which is better?

-A A +A
By Jeneen Wiche

I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated. 

These spring articles were about asparagus, and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus – and even the wild growing in the fencerows – fat is good!  The fat spears have always been tender from the garden; so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well suited for the charcoal grill.
