Preparation asparagus

Cut 2 cm off the bottom end of the asparagus stalks and peel well. Cut the tips off at 5 cm and finely dice the stalks. Place the asparagus tips in a vacuum bag with the orange zest, 1 tbsp orange juice, 1 tbsp olive oil and a little salt and pepper and vacuum-seal on medium. Likewise, place the diced asparagus stalks with the rest of the orange juice, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper in a vacuum bag and vacuum-seal on medium. Steam on Steam 80 °C for 30 minutes. Take both vacuum bags out of the cooking space. Put the diced asparagus stalks in a sauce pan and reduce to ⅓. Stir in the butter and place aside.
