Asparagus recipes and a little story…

The white asparagus and the green asparagus are a delicious vegetable.

But what kind of vegetables is asparagus?

Asparagus is a sprout of vegetables and botanically belongs to the asparagus family (Asparagaceae).

White Asparagus

White asparagus spears fresh from the market.

White asparagus is available in Germany almost all year round. The asparagus season for domestic asparagus from Germany begins in April and ends in June at Johanni.

Green Asparagus

Green asparagus fresh from the market

Green asparagus used to be a delicacy and can almost only be found in star restaurants. The white asparagus grows underground and remains white, the green asparagus grows outside the earth and becomes green.

The Asparagus Season in Germany begins in April and lasts until June.

An old country saying says, “Never stab the asparagus at Johanni.”

Johanni” refers to St John’s Day.

St John’s Day is 24 June, which is popularly called “Asparagus New Year’s Eve”.

How do you Recognize Fresh Asparagus?

When you go shopping for asparagus, please pay attention to its origin:

Organic asparagus and domestic asparagus are preferable to cheap imported goods.

  • You can recognize fresh asparagus by its appearance: shiny skin, closed heads and no brown spots.

How to Store Asparagus

  • Wrap asparagus in damp cloths and keep closed in the refrigerator.

What is included in Asparagus?

Asparagus contains many vitamins and minerals:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Beta carotene
  • B Complex Vitamins
  • Folic Acid

Folic acid is extremely sensitive to heat. Therefore, enjoy asparagus now and then finely cut as a raw vegetable in a salad!

Asparagus Health Effect

Asparagus is a delicacy medicine for the heart and kidneys. In the past, asparagus was even listed as a medicinal plant in the official pharmacopoeia and was available in every pharmacy.

Today, asparagus is often found as an ingredient in kidney and bladder teas.

In addition to its wonderful appearance and taste, asparagus is simply a very healthy vegetable.

Hieronymus Bock described the asparagus as “a lovely food for the mouth”…

Asparagus History

Asparagus has been eaten for 5,000 years and it only came to us in the Middle Ages.
