Sweet, tender, thin asparagus does not require peeling.

Saute asparagus to maximise nutrient retention & flavour.

Chopped asparagus make a flavourful & colourful addition to omelettes.

Used in soups, quiches, pies, salads, stirfries, casseroles & with fresh bread.

Nothing beats fresh Asparagus, simply steamed (until they are fork-tender 3 to 8 min depending on thickness), with a splash of balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper.

Also delicious with hollandaise sauce, aioli & a grating of parmesan, or a big dollop of herby butter.

Add cooked or sliced asparagus to a caesar salad & to sushi rolls.

Asparagus contains the nutrient riboflavin which helps maintain normal skin & mucous membranes & also helps reduce tiredness & fatigue.

Riboflavin contributes to the function of the nervous system & helps protect cells from oxidative stress.

We NEVER sell imported Asparagus.

To Keep fresh longer, wrap the ends with a damp paper towel & refrigerate.

Asparagus freezes well...

Trim ends, keeping the spears the same length, wash well, blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes, cool quickly & stack into flat trays, & then plastic bags.

Asparagus is full of sulfur & glutathione which helps in the detoxification process, especially when eaten raw.

Fresh asparagus sounds squeaky when rubbed if it does not squeak it is not fresh

Asparagus is perenial, once established can produce stalks for 15 to 20 years
