Poached Eggs with Asparagus, Green Garlic and Prosciutto — 5 Comments

  1. I could do with a vide grenier – much better to do it as a group thing though than on your own, I like this French idea.

  2. In just over three weeks we will be haunting the vides greniers again. We have a wish list that changes with time but most of our purchases aren’t on that list!
    Unfortunately the green garlic and asparagus will be over before we arrive.

  3. Our town does a town-wide garage sale every Memorial Day. People come from miles around as they know all the sales will be on that day. Unlike a vide grenier, everyone displays their stuff at their own home, so it is a zoo as people who are unfamiliar with the quirky streets try to drive from house to house.

  4. I have never poached an egg. Yes, I hang my head in shame…All the more reason to try this.

    We don’t have vide greniers. It’s every man for himself around me, but sometimes, if I’m in the mood, that can be a lot of fun.

  5. Kate, we participated in one before we moved down here. They really work well, both for selling and buying.

    Gill, the green garlic and the asparagus are gone…. But the peaches and nectarines are coming in!

    Pam, in the town where I grew up they do an ’90 mile’ sale on Memorial weekend – also a zoo. The vide greniers have parking and all roped off for pedestrians. Much nicer….

    nightsmusic, it took me forever and the first time was scary (eggs) but it really is easy.
