We are now picking our own home-grown asparagus. We maybe biased of course, but it is the best!
So delicious, full of flavour and far superior and tasty compared to imported varieties during the rest of the year.
An extraordinary veg as it can grow up to 10cm a day – it’s a real labour of love though as each spear is picked by hand when it reaches the right height.
Healthy – Packed full of goodness with high levels of vitamins A, K for healthy blood clotting and C to boost your immune system, potassium, iron, calcium and a diuretic – good for detox but gives urine an unmistakable aroma – which curiously not everyone can smell!
Quick and versatile – boil, steam, grill, roast or barbeque
Serve simply with melted butter or hollandaise sauce, bake in a quiche, enjoy with an egg and anchovy dressing, in a warm salad, with bacon and mozzarella in a slider, add with chilli and salmon to pasta for a speedy supper.
