Ham and Asparagus Roll Up with Apricot Sauce

The asparagus in the garden this time of the year is just beautiful, fresh and crisp. Sometimes I just have to eat a spear of asparagus as soon as it is cut in the garden. I am expecting a crowd here at The Cottage this week end so I wanted to create a nice appetizer with my fresh asparagus. This recipe is very simple and flavorful, you could make it for 2 or 20 and it would be great!
