The pink pepper is mostly for show. But what a pretty pink show it is. Steamed white asparagus is spring's gift to veggie-lovers. Remember to peel white asparagus so every bite is tender and delicious.



  1. Fill a pot with a lid halfway with water and add the salt, erythritol, and ghee.

  2. Cover and bring to a low boil over high heat.

  3. Clean the asparagus, chopping off the woody end of the spears.

  4. Peel asparagus. Using a vegetable peeler, and starting about 1 ½ inch (4 cm) from the tip, peel away the remaining tough outer layer.

  5. Simmer. Place the prepared asparagus lying down in the pot. Cover, and reduce heat to medium to keep them simmering.

  6. Cook for 7 to 9 minutes, or until a knife inserted in one stalk comes out smoothly.

  7. Remove from the pot, drain and serve. Sprinkle with pink pepper.
