    Cream of asparagus soup with Morels

    Clean the asparagus spears and cook the thin ones for about 5 minutes and the fat ones for about 10 minutes in boiling salted water.
    Drain both kinds and reserve the water in which they cooked.
    Cut off the tips of the eight thin spears and set them aside for the garnish.
    Peel and chop the shallot finely.
    Wash the morels CAREFULLY and cut them into quarters (if you are using dried ones, soak them in water for at least half an hour before this step).
    Heat half the butter in a saucepan.
    Add two-thirds of the chopped shallot and colour in the butter.
    Add the six fat asparagus spears and 200 ml (a cant 1/2 pint) of their reserved cooking water.
    Bring to the boil.
    Add the cream and reduce it by boiling fast for 2 minutes.
    Liquidise the soup with 30g (1 oz) of the remaining butter.
    Wash out the saucepan.
    Strain the liquidized soup through a fine sieve.
    Season with salt, pepper and cayenne, and return it to the cleaned saucepan.
    Set it aside.

    Finishing

    Reheat the thin asparagus tips by warming them through in a little of their cooking liquid.
    Reheat the asparagus soup.
    Put the morels, the rest of the chopped shallot and the remaining 20 g (3/4 oz) butter into a small saucepan.
    Season with a little salt and cook gently.
    The morels will excludea little liquid.
    Leave them to cook until they have given off all their liquid, at which stage they will be done.
    Take them off the heat.

    Serving

    Put a ladleful of the soup into each soup-plate. Garnish the centre of each one with a share of morels and two asparagus tips.
