Purple Asparagus

SKU: 13250-BC

Although its purple hue is only skin deep, this asparagus is less fibrous, more tender, and has a twenty percent higher sugar content than other asparagus varieties; cooking brings out flavors of artichoke, barley and almonds. Cook these spears over high, brief heat with as little embellishment as possible, preferably just olive oil, lemon and salt.
