“What happened to my asparagus? It’s purple!”
That’s right! This week we’ve got a slightly different variety of asparagus for you. And it’s really exciting. Not only is this asparagus more beautiful on the outside (in the biased opinion of someone whose favorite color is purple), but its pale green to creamy white interior is less fibrous than other asparagus and has a higher sugar content. This means that this purple asparagus is sweeter and more tender than other varieties. Plus, it’s striking purple color comes from potent antioxidants to fight inflammation and boost overall health. And you can still fix it in all the same ways you usually make your green asparagus (but reduce the cook time just a tad -- since this variety is more tender it will cook faster). You’re going to want to get this Flash Sale quick, before it’s gone!
