Just in time for asparagus season in the Yakima Valley!  So perhaps you are still celebrating from the great apple season and perhaps you awake one day with a bit of a hangover…not that you would…but if you do….steam up some asparagus.

According to a Journal of Food Science report, it’s chock-full of special amino acids that mop up aldehydes – the main culprits in having hangover. For faster relief, blend with water and drink as a juice.   For the “hair of the dog” types might I suggest a pickled spear in a cold Bloody Mary!  Cheers!  (Marie Claire Magazine April 2013)
