Asparagus now Is the featuro of the vegetable market, nnd will b until It gives plnce In late June or earlv July to homo grown peas. Thorn Is nothing new -.houl this wholesome and delirnto vege table, for tho old (Jrenks and Romans ap preciated Its value and Introduced It to tho Cauls, (lermans and Britons. Tho e.rly settlers In America from nnglanil and HnllRiid brought with them from ttielr own gardens the seeds 01' this much esteemed vegetable and soon asparagus bids formed a prized corner In every garden, while the feathery foliage of tho plants none to seed, wnved abovo every looking glass to divert the attention of the files and by the samo token abovo each horse's ears as ahado and fly at f actcr. Although a cosmopolitan vcgetahle, thorn aro certain localities whuro tho plant thrives exceptionally well; tho Kjieiirs being colossal In size and tho yield almost phenomenal. An asparagus bed onco started will go on producing for years, delighting the hearts and stomachs of Its owner.s by appearing each spring on Kohedtiln time and before any other vegetable has inado tho slightest showing. It thrives on salt and In farmers' gardens the brine from pork barrels or the mack erel tub Is carefully devoted to tho en richment nf the nsparagtts bed. Whllo thn commercial asparagus. Is blanched by ridging up over the rows with loose, windy soli or by allowing the mulch which Is applied In tho winter to remain and tho shoots to make (heir way through It, thn urrhlanehed, tender, green asparagus has a better flavor, Is more easily produced and more satisfactory for home use. IIOILKP ASPARAGUS. If the "grass" Is to he eaten from the hngers, cut the stalks evenly, removing the lower end of each stalk where It s bard und coarse. Wash tho stnlka care SCIENCE fi lly and tie together again In bundles, some cooks let the nsparagtts lie for 11 half hour In cold wnter before cooking, Tho kettle for boiling should be deep enough to allow the bundles of asparagus lo stnnd upright, with the tips out of water. Pour in boiling salted water, cover rlose. ly with n lid or Inverted pan to hold the steam In and rook the tips, nnd boll 20 tiilnntes until tender, but not soft or spongy. Season with salt, pepper and butter and servo on toast moistened with tome of the asparagus llrittor the water It Is cook ed In or solved alone, hot or chlllrd, dip ping each stalk before eating In French dressing or mnyonnalse. A chatttllly mayonnaise (the ordinary mayonnaise to v.hlch whipped cream has been added) Is recommended by Kscoffler. Oilier favor ed sauces are IIolhitnlal.se, mousselnio, tit awn butler or cream. IN'sULi:CTIN(SPARAC,rS. In selecting nspnrnyu- i the, niarlret "vvatcl." lo see that the little purply heads are fresh and erect nnd the cut end mns, or at least not lit own nnd dry. Alnrket men have a bad habit of keeping asparagus fresh by placing the stems In water. While this Is efllracloiis In a w.iv, It lessens Its atlmentnry value and In tloaes Us weight. In a rrepnt experi ment rondlicted by th" Hardeners.' union at Cplsenlielm on the Rhino It was dem onstrated that submerged asparagus In creased about 10 per cent, In weight In two days, whlrh was good for the grocer, but hard on thn consumer. Having "caught" your asparagus, tho next point Is tu properly cook It. And In this many cooks fall. Like the muh loont, the flavor of the asparagus Is too exqulslto to the "downed" bv the addition of onions or other strong flavors. .1. 11. .Martin, of the Cafe Alartln, feels so strongly on this subject that he has de clared that any nplnye of his establish ment found serving onion in the dressing of asparagus on his own Inltatlve shall be loundly reprimanded. If not discharged, as having 'ommltted a culinary crime. Another thing on which he lays stress Is that asparagus, hot or cold, should be served alone as a course and not with a meat or other vegetable. Americans, lis declares, should learn to prize this vege tnhle and treat It with the dignity it de serves. ASPARAC.lS TITS. There are many delightful ways of serv ing the asparagus tips when you have utilized the stalks for a cream soup. Boil ed In salted water for 10 or 12 minutes they may be used as a garnish for holled almon or a salmon salad, mnv he well siasoned and served In patties with or without a cream sauce, mav be seasoned with salt, pepper, butter and have a little cream added, then eaten from individual sauce dishes after the country method of serving green peas. They mav be added to an omelet Just before rolling, or an egg si ramble, allowing one-half cupful of tho tips to every three eggs. CRF.AAI OF ASPARAC.fR SOFP. Cook the stalks of one bunch of aspara gus In water or stock to cover until ten der. Alash the stalks through a sieve and return to the liquid in which they were cooked. Allow for each hunch of aspara gus a pint of milk. Heat to the boiling point, then thicken with a tablespoonful Pour rubbed smooth with a tablespoonful butter. Cook 10 minutes, add to the sater In which the stalks were cooked, season with salt nnd perpper, add a quar ter cupful cream, and If desired the asparagus tips that have been cooked by themselves for 20 minutes In salted water, and serve with croutons I'mma Paddock Telford.
