    White Asparagus

    It is that time of year.

    Some of the restaurants will be serving White Asparagus.

    Delicious!

    Here is a photo from Madam Janettes FB page

    Now I’m really sad we are missing our May trip once again! MJ’s always does a nice job with their white asparagus specials. Also enjoy the white asparagus as a side at Bavaria with their schnitzel.

    I can find them here at home as well, however they’re from Peru and just not the same. I believe Holland has special soil!!!

    Yes, our soil is perfect for white asparagus. We have them twice a week since the beginning of March. We keep doing this every year until the season is over mid June. Aren’t you jealous?

    Although I really like green asparagus, I'm not a fan of white. Had them once at Taste of Belgium and they just didn't do anything for me. I guess it could have been the way they were prepared.
