It's asparagus Jim, but not as we know it. It's sweeter and less fibrous than the spears you might be used to. Oh, and did we mention that it's a fetching shade of purple? Snap this up while you can. The Spanish season is short!

Farming from a beautiful part of the world in Extremadura, Spain, our grower Antonio is a real believer in the power of biodiversity on his farm. In fact, it was the first farm in Extremedura that became 100% organic. “The main thing about organic farming is the soil. You need only the plants, insects and trees to balance the soil. If you can imagine, 14 years ago there was no life here on the farm. With organic fertilisation, with the plants, herbs and the leaves of the trees we have created life in the soil. Do you know there’s more life in a small amount soil than the population on Earth? We hope to preserve the balance for years and years. Some of our fruit trees are 40 years old. In conventional farming this would never be possible.” Antonio calls his farm one of the best places to grow in all of Spain. “I love organic farming, it’s a pleasure.”

Ingredients & allergens

Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

Storage & prep

Simply cut off the rough ends of the stem. If you have a steaming basket, steam for 5-10 minutes. When boiling asparagus, you should use a tall, lidded pan to hold the stems upright because asparagus tips cook more quickly than the bases. Keep cool and wrapped up. We recommend you eat it within two days of your weekly delivery to enjoy it at its best.
