To us, asparagus is the taste of spring, so we enjoy it in as many meals as we can. When this thick and creamy chowder is on the table, we know spring has arrived. —Elisabeth Harders, West Allis, Wisconsin
We have a small asparagus patch, and my husband and I wait eagerly for this tasty vegetable to appear every spring. We're pleased to use our precious harvest in this soup. Lemon and nutmeg give it a surprising spark.

Each spring, my husband takes our dogs and searches for wild asparagus. He's been so successful that I finally developed this recipe. We look forward to this special soup every year.—Betty Jones, Kohler, Wisconsin
