French   -   Asparagus And Emmenthaler Tart   adapted from unknown

  • 1 Pound Asparagus -- (Preferably White)
  • 2 Quarts Boiling Water -- mixed with
  • 4 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 9 Inch Unbaked Pie Shell
  • 3 Ounces Well Aged Emmenthaler Cheese -- coarseley grated
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 3/4 Cup Cream
  • 2 Md Eggs -- lightly beaten
  • 1/4 Cup Freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 Tablespoon Kirschwasser
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely Snipped Fresh Dill Or -- dill weed
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground mace
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
Directions Emmenthaler is a dry, aged cheese that accents the flavor of asparagus.
Serve as the main course of a light lunch or supper. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F.
Snap coarse ends off asparagus stalks leaving spears about 3 1/2-inches long. (Save the trimmed-off ends to use for soup.) Peel the asparagus spears using a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler, lay them flat in a large heavy skillet, pour in boiling salted water and set over moderate heat.
Cover and cook asparagus for about 10 minutes, until very tender. Drain well, return to the skillet and shake over moderate heat for 30 seconds or so to dissipate any excess moisture. Arrange the asparagus spears like the spokes of a wheel over the bottom of the pie crust, with their tips pointing toward the center. Combine the milk, cream, eggs, Parmesan cheese, Kirschwasser, salt, dill, mace and pepper, and pour the liquid evenly over the asparagus. Bake the tart, uncovered, for 35 minutes, or until the filling has set. Remove the tart from the oven and cool it for at least 20 minutes before cutting.
