    Oh My, This is excellent. Everyone loved this. Even the kids in my day care. As parents came in the door, I gave them a taste. They all demanded the recipe. I blanched my asparagus for 1 minute and it came out perfect. Also used Splenda in place of the sugar. Thank you for a recipe I will use again and again.
