Sadly, the British Asparagus season is a short one (April-June) so make the most of this delicious and versatile vegetable while its around! British Asparagus can be enjoyed in a variety of ways – once the lower part of each stem has been snapped off you can pop it in a saucepan to boil or steam, in the oven to roast or (our personal favourite) pan-fry with a little garlic.
Growing British asparagus is a true labour of love. Each spear is harvested by hand when it reaches just the right height. A cool, crisp spring - not too wet and not too dry - means that we should be on course for a great crop this year. Our fantastic asparagus growers in Evesham are behind the delicious local spears we’ve come to love.
