WHITE ASPARAGUS, 2lb Bundles
REQUIRES 24 HOURS FOR FULFILLMENT
COURTESY OF SOLEX FINE FOODS, OUR RESTAURANT DIVISION
Sold in 2 lb bundles. The white asparagus season is very brief and therefore white asparaus is highly sought after by high-end restaurants this time of year. Europeans prize white asparagus as a springtime delicacy, but because there are no domestic producers in the United States, white asparagus is only available imported, with the very best coming from Austria.
White asparagus has a sweet, grassy flavor. We love them best blanched in salted water then pan-fried in brown butter with bread crumbs and lemon and topped with chopped boiled egg but there are endless recipes available online.
White asparagus must be peeled prior to cooking: To do so, simply lay them on a cutting board and slide a sharp knife down the length of each stalk to remove the fibrous outer layer.
Please note: Our white asparagus ships from the SOLEX Fine Foods New Jersey warehouse so we require 24 hours to get the order packed and ready to ship. As a result we cannot offer same day shipping.
