White Asparagus

Description

Fresh White Asparagus. Price per 1lb. Jumbo White  Asparagus from Holland, is derived from the same varieties as green asparagus, however its growing method separates it from other varieties; while being cultivated, it has never seen the light of day, removing chlorophyl from the equation. Therefore it matures without color, making it the albino version of asparagus. Their flavor is mild, earthy and nutty. White asparagus are tender and sweet, and can be eaten raw or cooked. Saute chopped white asparagus with shrimp or scallops, or cook quickly in brown butter and serve as a side. Thinly slice the asparagus spears on a diagonal, then toss with chopped watercress, shaved pecorino romano cheese and vinaigrette.
