From the Test Kitchen

Asparagus is one of the true symbols of spring. It even grows wild in backyards and forested areas throughout the country during this time. If the temperature is warm enough, the spears can grow up to 10 inches in a 24-hour period. For this recipe you’ll use a common green variety, but there are over 300 known varieties, including white and purple, that grow all around the world.
