I prefer local asparagus, it tastes better and comes at best from your surroundings. By buying domestic asparagus you firstly secure jobs in Germany and secondly you contribute to less CO2 pollution. That helps the planet!
German asparagus season: early April to late June. The official end is the asparagus New Year’s Eve on 24 June.
1.1 Detect fresh Asparagus
You can recognize fresh asparagus by the following characteristics:
Closed asparagus heads
Fresh asparagus has no brown spots
Fresh asparagus smells pleasant
Asparagus fresh, the ends should not be too dry.
1.2 Asparagus peeling made easy
I’ll show you the professional chef asparagus peeler in the following:
Please peel white asparagus starting about 3 cm below the tips.
Green asparagus only at the end about 5 cm peel.
Here a picture:
Peel asparagus like a pro: Grasp the tip of the asparagus spear with your fingers. Place the asparagus spear over your hand on your wrist. While peeling, turn the asparagus spear with your fingers and remove the peel evenly with the pendulum peeler. By placing the asparagus spear on the hand and wrist, the asparagus gets a stable surface when peeling and does not break!
Use a sharp pendulum peeler to peel the asparagus, then it will work smoothly!
