Dehydrated Asparagus Powder

Blanch for Two Minutes
Plunge Into ice Water
We love asparagus and work hard not to waste any of the spears we harvest.   To this end, we save the woody ends of our asparagus, blanch them, shred them with our food processor, dehydrate them, and grind the dehydrated spears into a fine powder.

We then use the powder to make
Cream of Asparagus Soup and
 also to thicken chili's and other
 homemade soups.  Hubby and
 I try to avoid consuming wheat
 so this asparagus powder works
for us as an excellent, thickening
alternative to flour.
