Appetizer Exploration ::: Honey Ham Baby Asparagus Roll-Ups

Me being just a sous chef in charge fully on appetizer and a kitchen hand to chef Tim ("dear") on Mother's Day Dinner. I'm here to share my 1st appetizer recipe!

200g of Baby Asparagus
200g of Honey Ham
125g Butter
Salt and Black Ground Pepper to taste
Chives for garnishing & to knot up the Roll-Ups
Filtered Water.

Preparation of Baby Asparagus
1. Wash, soak, and cut baby Asparagus in half.
2. Bring water to boil with 3 pinch of salt, place in asparagus in to boil till it’s tender rescue it and place it in a plate.
3. Heat a non-stick pan and melt butter, slowly pour in the asparagus and stir it around for about 1 minute then add in salt and black ground pepper to taste.
4. Dish it up and now we can start rolling it up~

Assembling the Honey Ham Roll Ups
1. Cut Honey Ham into 4 slices (2”x3”)
2. Take one slice and place 2-3 sticks of baby asparagus at the side and roll it up.
3. Use a chive to knot up the Honey Ham Baby Asparagus Roll-Ups so they will stay together and will not be fallen apart when consuming.
4. Repeat steps 1-3. And stack them up in a pyramid formation for a nice presentation.

The type of ham used can be changed to your preference.

Hope this pretty nice blanket of Ham will encourage us to consumer more vegetables & love Asparagus more as it has 8 Health Benefits!!!!!!
