- Facts on Asparagus:
Asparagus is a vegetable with long, tender shoots that are often classified as white, purple and green variations. The asparagus’ color is identified by the amount of exposure to sunlight.
Green asparagus are widely known in the United States and is the most commonly used when it comes to cooking. The white asparagus is the type that is the most famous type in Northern Europe.
Green asparagus is grown in a flatbed so it will be exposed to the sunlight. Exposure to sunlight will increase the chlorophyll content that makes the asparagus green.
Purple asparagus is grown in mound and it is permitted to grow roughly 3 inches above the surface before it is harvested. When this asparagus is exposed to sunlight it begin changing colors from light purple, to purple, and then green.
White asparagus is grown underneath a mound of dirt that keeps the stalks from turning green. These are the type of asparagus that are usually harvested early in the morning to limit the sun exposure, too much exposure will turn the white asparagus to green.
Asparagus is known to be rich in vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, folate, and glutathione. Asparagus is a great nutritional option.
Asparagus spears can be thick or thin. Size of the asparagus is not an indicator of quality. Thicker spears have rougher, woodier ends, but these are smashed off before cooking anyway.
It is important to choose bundles that are refrigerated or placed on ice because asparagus weakens quickly. This is also why it is recommended to use them within two to three days after purchase or sooner.
Asparagus can be cooked in several ways such as steaming, boiling, sautéing, roasting, grilling, and microwaving. They can be paired with roasted chicken or fish, they can be blended to make a soup, and they can also be eaten without accompaniment.
The asparagus is not only a tasty vegetable; it offers a lot of health benefits that can be useful in having and maintaining a healthy body.
