I just took two pounds of fresh, thin asparagus, washed and snapped them this morning, and poured a little canola on 'em in a sealable plastic container and took it to work. Fifteen minutes before the potluck, I fired up a grill outside and just cooked 'em for about ten minutes, until they were nicely caramelized and just starting to go limp.
