How to Cook White Asparagus – German Recipe instructions
- You need to prepare white asparagus before cooking. Put them in a pot of water and bring to a boil. This is the key to cooking white asparagus!.
- Rinse the white asparagus very well. You can make a good stock from asparagus peels, so save them for cooking later..
- Peel the outer skin from the tips to the bottom. The skin around the tips is tender, so start to peel 2 cm below the tips to the bottom..
- Tip: You don't want the tough skin to ruin your dish. Peel the skin to a depth that will completely remove it. Cut off about 2 cm from the bottom of the stems because they are tough..
- Put the water, seasonings and white asparagus, including the trimmings, in a pot. Bring to a boil. Do not forget to put in the bottom parts you cut off..
- Tip – In Germany, you can find a special asparagus pot (I don't have it), but you can use a normal pot. Cook the asparagus so that the bottom parts are always under the water..
- It takes roughly 10 minutes, but it differs according to the size and thickness of your stalks. Check how they are by eating the 2-cm at the end of the stem (it might be bitter…)..
- They are done when tender. Serve them hot! Do not throw away the cooking liquid! You can make a tasty risotto with it!.
- I am trying to make a white asparagus risotto recipe using the cooking liquid! Hopefully I can upload it soon..
- Spargelzeit is name of the season of white asparagus from April to June in Germany. The photo is an advert from a newspaper..
- They are sold like this in supermarkets. (You can buy loose ones too!) About 500 g costs about 3.5 euros (420 yen)..
