Monday Market: White Asparagus from Navarra - Cojonudos!

Early every morning in March in the Navarra region, giant white asparagus spears are dug up and cut from the ground with a knife.

The distinct Navarra asparagus is only harvested after two years of growth. Just before shoots sprout, fresh earth is mounded above the plants to block the sun and keep them white. Each spear is peeled by hand and boiled in salt water until it turns translucent and meltingly tender.

King Juan Carlos once tasted the white asparagus made by our friends at Navarrico and declared "Cojonudos!," slightly off color slang for "Delicious!" Serve them well chilled with a dollop of mayonnaise.
