I was given some transplant asparagus last fall…dug it a whole on the side of the yard next to my neighbor’s garage and promptly forgot about it.
Last night while watering the beets, peas, onions, garlic, radishes, and carrots I looked over at the overgrown weed/grass and a dried out asparagus fern. Went over to weed and found wee asparagus spears!
NOTE: Since I see a lot of people looking up this recipe I thought I’d let you know how it turned out. The ham with the marmalade/mustard rub was EXCELLENT ~ very tasty. BUT ~ personally, I’d leave off the crust. Or at least use a pie crust instead, as the crescent rolls kept sliding off the ham!
I was watching Paula Deen on the Food Network last Christmas and drooling over her CHRISTMAS HAMrecipe…only we were invited over to the in-laws for Christmas and I didn’t get to make it! So, guess what I’m making for Easter!?! 🙂
