Featured Veggie: Asparagus

By March 2, 2010Featured Food

AsparagusOften considered a “luxury vegetable,” asparagus is as nutritious as it is uniquely tasty—it’s high in Folic Acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin. A member of the lily family, asparagus is only available for a short period of time during the spring months.  However, it can grow quite quickly—under ideal conditions, an asparagus spear can grow 10″ in a 24-hour period!  This week we are featuring asparagus from Cal-Organics.
