Asparagus and Ham (Spargle mit Schwarzwalder Schinken)
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A great appetizer...just steam some fresh asparagus and wrap with a very thin slice of ham!
fresh good quality asparagus spears
Wash and trim asparagus, breaking or snipping off the hard stem ends. In a flat skillet with lid, heat about 1/4 cup water to boiling. Add asparagus spears, cover. Reduce heat to simmer or medium, and cook just 1-3 minutes. Do not overcook! Remove to serving platter and sprinkle with seasonings. Wrap with thin slices of ham. Or, just snip the ham onto the spears of asparagus.
