The asparagus season lasts from the beginning of May until mid-June. During this time, almost every eatery in Germany offers a special asparagus menu (Spargelkarte) in addition to their regular menu.
A very popular method of serving the vegetable is with potatoes, butter or Hollandaise sauce, and either smoked or Black Forest ham. We love to eat asparagus with very thin crèpe like pancakes and ham - what a delight!!!
In Germany, the asparagus is almost always of the white variety (achieved by growing the stalks under mounds of earth so the sun doesn’t cause them to produce chlorophyll).
Since Karlsruhe is very close to what they call "die deutsche Spargelstraße" = the German asparagus street, we only have to drive a few kilometers to buy asparagus directly from the farmers......
