Asparagus

      Purple Asparagu

In the US, as recently as 30 years ago, we had 3 times as many acres producing asparagus as we do today. And we’re eating more fresh asparagus than ever before. How is this so? Well, the market for canned asparagus has mostly disappeared, but imports from Mexico and South America have extended the vegetable’s season and met some of the demand for the spears. There is nothing like, fresh local asparagus and Oregon’s growers, while no Michigan or Washington’s production-wise, match; possibly exceed their quality. Enjoy while the season lasts and watch our video for ideas on how to have asparagus.
