White Spargal (Asparagus)

Here is something new I’ve never seen until arriving in Berlin, white asparagus. And not just your ordinary stalks of asparagus, but rather asparagus on steroids and devoid of all color. I don’t know much about it, except that it is grown below ground so never has the opportunity to go through photosynthesis and turn green, but how the hell it grows so large is still a mystery to me. But, any day of the week you can head to a food market and buy this albino veggie in abundance and are guaranteed to love it’s sweet flavor and tender texture.

  1. Can’t wait to try it. We should plan to cook at least once when we’re together. Either that or stop posting about all these awesome-sounding food places!
