Serves: 5asp

1 bunch asparagus (20 stalks)
10 pieces of bacon from Aspen Ridge Farm or Apple Ridge Farm

Trim the tough asparagus bottoms, then wash and pat it dry. Slice each strip of bacon down the center into two long, thin pieces.

Wrap a length of bacon corkscrew fashion around each asparagus spear and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the top third of a COLD OVEN. Yes, you read that right. A cold oven. The wrapped asparagus needs be in the oven during preheat so the bacon will hold its shape. Turn the oven to 400° and bake about 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Serve it immediately.
