Schritt für Schritt - Anleitung

Step 1

Peel the asparagus. Collect the peels in a pot and wrap the spears in a damp cloth and store in a cool place.

Step 2

Cover the asparagus peels with water and add the lemon, butter, salt and sugar.

Step 3

Slowly heat the asparagus stock over low to medium heat. Do not bring to a strong boil, just simmer for about one to two hours.

Step 4

Strain the asparagus stock through a fine sieve, reduce slightly if necessary and season to taste. 

Step 5

The asparagus stock can now be used to cook asparagus. This gives it even more strength and it can then be used for soups, risottos and much more.
