Quick Overview



Tender, sweet and delicate – the flavour of English asparagus just can’t be beaten. The ultimate challenge for an organic grower, but this beautiful vegetable is worth the trouble. Steam gently, then dress with melted butter and some salt and pepper.

Cooking

Snap the bottom end off, then boil or roast. Keep trimmings for stock/soup/risotto. Great served with poached or boiled eggs, melted butter or hollandaise sauce.

Storage

Store in the fridge - though best to eat it fresh. Straight from the farm, so wash before cooking.

Varieties/season

In boxes from April to mid/late June - one of the first signs of spring. We begin the season by importing from Spain until the UK season catches up.

More info

Asparagus is a member of the lily family, and its spears can grow up to 10" in 24 hours in the right conditions. It is incredibly nutritious - high in fibre and folic acid, as well as vitamins A, C and B6.
