1 lb. Fresh asparagus, chopped
1/2 c. Chopped fresh onions

13 oz.Chicken stock

2 Tbs. Butter or margarine
2 Tbs. flour
1 tsp. Salt
few grains pepper
1 c. Milk
1/2 c. Sour cream
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

Cook asparagus in covered saucepan with onion and 1/2 cup chicken stock  8-10 minutes or until asparagus is just tender. Blend in electric blender until smooth. (This much can be frozen for year round fresh asparagus soup. Add the rest when making soup). Melt in butter or margarine; blend in flour, salt, and pepper. Stir in remaining chicken stock. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches boiling point. Stir in asparagus puree and milk. Stir a little hot mixture into sour cream; stir into hot mixture. Add lemon juice. Heat just to serving temperature, stirring frequently. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh chives, as desired.

Makes about 4 cups. It is really good any time of the year.
