Asparagus with Warm Angostura Mayonnaise

The vegetables for this tasty side dish may be cooked in an iron frying pan or on a stovetop griddle, or on the barbecue or roasted in the oven – whichever is most familiar and easiest for you.
If you have not used Angostura bitters in food before, start with 1/2 teaspoon in the mayonnaise. Taste, then stir in 1/2 teaspoon more if desired. Serve veggies hot as a side dish, or roast ahead of time and serve room temperature as an appetizer using the mayonnaise as a dipping sauce.
Important post script: My bitters-laced mayonnaise has become my “go-to” mayo, similar to my Angostura ketchup. I keep both in my fridge in squeeze bottles. Try the mayonnaise on sandwiches, or as a dip for artichokes, or to make tuna or chicken salad in place of plain mayo. If you have others ideas, let me know by posting a comment below 😮
