“A former member of the lily family of plants, asparagus now has its own plant family, the Asparagaceae family. This fact alone should tell you something about the uniqueness of this ultra-nutritious vegetable“–Paul Ebeling

Asparagus is a healthy delicious superfood that is ready for us in the Spring.  When it is asparagus season that means it is Spring! It is a very special vegetable that is tasty and expensive too. The jumbo stalks are more tender and succulent than their pencil-thin counterparts.

Because this vegetable grows so quickly the need for pesticides and other chemicals is reduced.  It is on the Environmental Working Group’s Clean 15 list of fruits and vegetables with the lowest occurrence of pesticides.  Of course, you can still eat Organic for that little bit of extra nutrition and buy Organic to support the cause.

Like almost all vegetables, it helps to balance out, what for most individuals is an overly acidic diet. Being more alkaline creates greater energy, beautiful skin, and a stronger immune system and less degenerative diseases.

And there is this: Aphrodisiac

Many cultures traditionally consider asparagus to be a natural aphrodisiac. Although there is not a lot of research to back this up, it’s close cousin Shatavari, also part of the asparagus family  is called “she who possesses 100 husbands” for good reason.  Satavari is also known within the Ayurvedic health system to feed both male and female reproductive tissues and has been used to treat PMS and menopause symptoms for centuries.

“Asparagus Capital of the World” in Schwetzingen, Germany holds its annual asparagus festival in the 1st wk of May. The person who grows the heaviest stalk is named Spargel King or Queen. Also, asparagus chefs compete to create the best recipes. It was 1st cultivated 2,500 yrs ago by the Greeks..

I eat it alone, lighted steamed and covered in French butter.
