    1. Peel the white asparagus with a vegetable peeler from top to bottom, starting below the tips. Cut off any woody ends with a knife. Break of the bottom end of the green asparagus spears where they snap when bending. Cut all of the asparagus spears into 4cm pieces.
    2. Heat butter and oil in a large frying pan. Add the asparagus and fry until lightly browned, then add sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook until the spears can be easily pierced with a sharp knife, about 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the asparagus.
    3. Towards the end of the cooking time, stir in the cream and cook until slightly reduced.
