* I always peel asparagus, as the stalk can be quite tough, especially on
mature asparagus. If you purchase the pencil thin asparagus, it is not
necessary to peel them, as they are generally quite tender.


Spread nuts out on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350F degree oven for 5 to
10 minutes until golden. Different sizes and types of nuts toast at varying
times; the smaller the nut, the faster it browns, so you have to keep a
watchful eye on the oven.
