Asparagus often originates in maritime habitats and blossoms in soils too saline for regular weeds to grow.
Asparagus tends to hold sand in the flowery tips of the stalk. To prepare asparagus for cooking, take the time to soak it for a few minutes, then rinse it to rid the sand from the bell-shaped flower tips.
Young asparagus is preferred when eaten. Once the flowery bell-shaped buds start to open, the buds quickly turn woody.
Of course, adding healthy fruits to your daily diet is wise. However, eating organic fruits is smarter. Why? No chemicals. Eating foods with minimal chemicals helps prevent early illness.
