Asparagus – White or Green?

Asparagus is coming into season…a good time to educate you about the difference between White and Green Asparagus. White Asparagus are nothing more than Green Asparagus that have been deprived of sunlight (either real or artificial). No photosynthesis has been allowed to take place. I have heard that white asparagus are milder and less “bitter” than green, but I have also heard exactly the opposite. A blind taste test has proven to me that it makes no never mind which I use – so I use green on my beautiful white plates unless for some aesthetic reason white will “go with the outfit”!!
