After trying several different recipes for asparagus soup, I put together the best ingredients from each for my favorite version. This soup is great year-round and adds an elegant touch to special-occasion meals.

It makes me feel great to prepare a delicious soup like this one and set it on the table in my favorite soup tureen. Even my three children love it. The next day, we scramble for the leftovers...if there are any.

"I associate asparagus with spring-time...and its beautiful green color with new life," shares Lynn Vogel of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "That's why this delightful soup is the perfect started to our family's Easter dinner each year."
My family loves this delicious soup made with fiddleheads (the tightly curled young fronds from bracken, ostrich and cinnamon ferns). We have been hunting for and harvesting wild edible plants for a number of years now. Fiddleheads are one of the first plants to sprout in the spring.—Karen Grasley, Quadeville, Ontario
