Quick Apple Glazed Asparagus
-Rinse/wash asparagus well. Snap the ends of the asparagus off about 1 inch up from the bottom. When you start to bend them down there they will break where they should.
-Use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer, tough layer off.
-Toss in a hot pan with a little extra-virgin olive oil in it
-Saute for a few minutes till the outsides get a little color
-Remove from heat
-While pan is still hot pour on some soy sauce (about 3 Tbl for one bunch of asparagus-the size they sell in the store, about a handful around) And stir in a few tablespoons of apple jelly.
-Remove and place on a baking sheet lined with foil (spoon any glaze that dripped in the pan on top of the asparagus.)
-Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, more or less depending on your preference and depending on your asparagus (thickness, age, etc) -taste as you go
*Some grated orange or lemon zest would have been great on top. Or some candied ginger? Next time.
