GSOYP 2014-’15: Asparagus

For the third of four tastings for all four elementary schools, Chris Graciano of Witherspoon Grill chose asparagus grown by Pam, Gary and Tannwen Mount of Terhune Orchards – but the weather didn’t cooperate. The long winter delayed the growing season here in central New Jersey, so we sourced the vegetable from elsewhere.

Scroll down for photographs (thank you, Jen Cohan, of Savory PR!) from the four Garden State on Your Plate farm-to-school events, but first, here’s the handout provided for the children:
