I never saw one of those white asparagi or asparagus yet. But I like the greeny ones too. Here in Italy, we steam them and eat with lightly boiled eggs. They are only good and come in spring though.

That is such a great idea. I just had my first white asparagus of the season last Sunday and I would love to skip the peeling process if I could. Which stalls offer this?? EDIT Nicky: Hi Megan, I purchased my last one at the stall right across the Liesl-Karlstadt-fountain.

here at the neighborhood weekly farmer's market they are doing the same this year :-) you can buy asparagus and ask the peel to be removed :-)

Several years ago, I remember how excited my friend was that I would be visiting her during the white asparagus season. Her sister prepared us a simple meal of fresh boiled/steamed (?) white asparagus, peeled at the market, a drizzle of hollandaise sauce, new potatoes, and thin-sliced ham. Utterly delicious. Looking back, I find it so wonderful that eating seasonally is so naturally ingrained in the German way of life.
