Asparagus

Discover the delightful taste of our fresh asparagus. Each spear is tender, crisp, and packed with a unique flavour that ranges from grassy green to subtly nutty. Perfect for quick and easy recipes, you can roast them with a sprinkle of sea salt and olive oil, or steam them and drizzle with lemon juice for a refreshing side dish. Try adding chopped asparagus to your favourite pasta or tossing them in a stir-fry for a boost of nutrition and taste.

Selecting the freshest asparagus at the grocery store is straightforward with these tips. Look for stalks that are firm and straight, with a vibrant green colour that fades to white at the base. The tips should be tightly closed and compact, resembling a brush. Avoid asparagus that appears wilted, has spreading tips, or shows signs of dryness or wrinkles. Also, ensure the stalks are uniform in thickness to ensure even cooking​.

Asparagus is incredibly versatile and can elevate many dishes. For a simple yet delicious preparation, toss asparagus spears with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast them in the oven until tender. You can also grill them for a smoky flavour, or blanch them and add to salads for a fresh crunch. Another tasty option is to incorporate asparagus into risottos or quiches. Their delicate flavour pairs well with eggs, cheese, and citrus, making them a perfect addition to springtime meals​.
