Nearing the end of Jerry’s two weeks of liquid diet!
3 cups home made chicken stock
1 bunch of asparagus
2 cups milk
Cut the tips off the asparagus (i cut them about 2 inches long) and set aside. Combine the rest of the asparagus (i cut the stalks into 3 inch lengths so they’d fit in my 3 quart pot more easily) into the chicken stock along with the quartered onion. Heat to just boiling, turn down heat then cover and simmer about an hour. Add the milk, heat through, then strain soup through a cheese cloth after removing vegetables with a slotted spoon. Add some salt if you like. I never add pepper for this purpose of healing from hernia operation because it’s imperative that he not have any indigestion.
Use organic, local, and dairy products from grassfed cows if possible.
Jerry is a picky eater and even he liked this one!
