Asparagus

Shop Locally; Eat Seasonally

 

St George

Thursday is St George’s Day and is also the start of British asparagus season.

You can find out more about St George here.

British asparagus season may be brief but is worth celebrating. Not only do those little green shoots taste really good, they also contain vitamin K, which is essential for healthy blood clotting. It is a rich source of vitamin C to boost your immune system (particularly helpful right now) and asparagus is also a mild diuretic and is believed to help detoxify the body.

We’re all needing to shop locally right now, and many of us are shopping at farm shops. This makes eating seasonally essential.

 

Here’s our guide to what’s in season in April

 

Plus an Asparagus Recipe for One
