Guten Tag! Jetzt ist Spargel Zeit! (It’s Asparagus Time).
White asparagus is one of my favourite. White asparagus comes from the process of etiolation which is the deprivation of sunlight. Soil is kept mounded around the merging stalk, depriving it of light. The plant cannot produce chlorophyll without light, thus there is no green color to the stalks. Furthermore they are considered to be slightly milder in flavour and a bit more tender then the green ones.
It’s a very popular late spring/early summer dish in Germany! The asparagus is usually boiled, drizzled with either hollandaise sauce or melted butter without compromising the orginal freshness and texture of the asparagus.
You can eat it plain or pair it with cured ham, smoked salmon, boiled potatoes sprinkled with freshly cut parsley and sliced boiled eggs. But most importantly in my opinion one must have a pint or two of Maibock beer to round up this delectable meal! Proßt!
If you haven’t tried it before or miss eating it head down to Paulaner Bräuhaus Singapore for your fix before the season ends.
