Germans get pretty excited about asparagus season here, also known as Spargelzeit. German asparagus is really good, and they’re especially fond of white asparagus with hollandaise sauce and ham. Mmm.

The S-Bahn (metro) here is even doing a special Spargelfahrt – asparagus trip – with the historic S-Bahn. Pretty cute, right?


I picked up some green asparagus the other day and sautéed it with some garlic and butter. It made a nice, crunchy, delicious lunch. The only thing I don’t like about asparagus is that your pee smells crazy for the rest of the day. Hah.

One thought on “Spargelzeit

  1. What is the point of white asparagus? Totally tasteless…though some European nations say it’s good for constipation! Do you like it?
