Asparagus Season in Alsace

by Jenn
(Bartenheim, Alsace)

For those of you who LOVE asparagus (asperges in French and Spargel in German), this is the season for fresh asparagus!

It starts around April and goes to about mid June.

You'll see almost every restaurant offering specials for asparagus. Often they come with different sauces and charcuterie or hams.

Alsace is one of the few regions that grow asparagus in France.

You'll find green asparagus and well as white asparagus (which Alsace is particularly famous for).
