    1. Peel the asparagus with a vegetable peeler from top to bottom, starting below the tips. Cut off any woody ends with a knife and cut the spears into 3 equal pieces.
    2. Heat the butter in a frying pan and add the asparagus. Drizzle with lemon juice and add the sugar.
    3. Cook and stir until the asparagus is soft and can be easily pierced with a sharp knife, about 10 to 15 minutes, turning it often. Towards the end stir in the cream and cook till reduced slightly.
