Asparagus from Navarre


Comunidad Foral de Navarra


Asparagus from Navarre, protected by the Denomination of Origin, is white and of an extraordinary quality. This makes it one of the bases of the gastronomy of Navarre.

Asparagus from Navarre are fleshy stalks from the 'Asparagus Officinalis, L' asparagus plant, cultivated on the banks of the river Ebro. The asparagus recognised by the denomination is white (which indicates that it has remained underground with absolutely no exposure to the sun), smooth in texture, little or no fibres and a perfect balance of smoothness and bitterness on the palate. This vegetable has a system of roots that emerge from the vine from which the hearts form that will become the asparagus. Cultivation of this plant requires great care to avoid exposure to the sun, which would turn them into green asparagus. The harvest takes place between the months of April and June. Once at the factory, the asparagus are classified by size and packaged. They are consumed either fresh are preserved. This food is low in calories and protein and high in vegetable fibre. It is very diuretic and easily digestible, though not very nutritious. Its culinary applications are diverse: it is excellent in soups, omelettes, grilled, as a garnish, in salads or cooked and accompanied by all types of sauces.
