Description

Considered to be one of the delicacies of the vegetable world, asparagus has an distinct, intense, savoury flavour. They are labour intensive to grow and are actually the young shoots of a cultivated lily plant.

Boil for 3-5 minutes or steam for 4-5 minutes depending upon size. Season and drizzle with some olive oil or butter with freshly squeezed lemon. A little balsamic vinegar or shaved parson also work well.

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Additional information

Storage info

Best kept in the refrigerator and consumed within a coupe of days. Wrap the spears in a damp cloth or paper towel to increase lifespan.

Health benefits

Asparagus packs a nutritional punch, with high levels of vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and calcium, and they're also diuretic, giving urine an unmistakable aroma – which apparently, not everyone can smell!
