When is it seasonal? Spring, from about March to May – it has a pretty short season!
- Colors: green asparagus is most common, but there are purple and white varieties too!
Nutrition: High in Vitamin K, folate, and fiber. Fun fact, asparagus may make your urine smell strange, and that is due to asparagusic acid – it is harmless!
Culinary Basics: You can steam asparagus to keep it extra crunchy. You can sear it in a hot pan with some oil to char and soften the outside. Also, you can roast asparagus in the oven, and it will become softer and a bit sweeter!
