Asparagus season is here!

While in the soil, these stems are white, juicy and fragile - 1-2 cm thick. After they emerge above the soil, they turn green, thicken, branch and reach a height of 1.5-2 m. About 100 species of asparagus are known.

Juicy young "candles" are valuable dietary food, rich in proteins, carbohydrates and various vitamins.

Fresh, canned or frozen they are used in various dishes and salads.

To peel them, it is recommended to do this in the direction from the base to the tip, and not to scrape them from the ends, so that the fibrous waste does not remain on them.

They are the "princesses" of spring vegetables. They were once used in medicine to stop bleeding. During the Renaissance they were considered an aphrodisiac.

Asparagus Week April 23 - 27, 2007, at 7:00 PM will be held at the Hilton.
