We are so used to seeing green asparagus sold in stores in a container of water. But did you know there are also purple and white asparagus? The white ones are also called "white gold" and "edible ivory".
Such estimable names for a vegetable!
In the beauty world, it is known that the water from cooking asparagus may help clean blemishes on the face if used twice a day.
Many German cities celebrate a festival in honor of the white asparagus and during this festival an Asparagus Queen is crowned!
