Foil Baked Asparagus

A very simple method of cooking asparagus, where they are wrapped in foil and baked, with nothing but a little butter and salt. So easy and yet so delicious!! My 2 1/2 year old daughter liked it too! I've only tried this once and I followed the recipe exactly as set out, but I'd like to try it again, perhaps putting a few sprigs of herbs in with it. You could also try herb butter instead of ordinary butter. You can omit the salt if you like. If you are making larger quantities you might need to make more than one "parcel". You could even wrap each portion separately and serve them in the foil wrappers - I ate mine straight out of the foil, and I think it made them even nicer as they're still steaming hot and in their cooking juices, and you can keep all that flavour and aroma trapped in the parcel until you're ready to eat it! Would make a really good starter served like this. Although I suppose it depends what kind of guests you've got - if they're used to silver platters they might not be so impressed with silver foil!! But I would be! :)
