Like participants in a regional game of Telephone, rural Englanders in the early 20th century mislabeled it “sparrow grass.” We’re not exactly sure how they understood the bird connection, but asparagus stalks clearly imitate grass with their slender, green shoots.
No matter what it’s been called throughout its extensive history (going back to at least ancient Egypt) it’s undoubtedly been loved for its clean, bright flavor, and earthy-green notes. What’s more fresh tasting than a perfectly steamed shoot of asparagus? Our Trimmed Asparagus might only require a brief boil, and a little salt & pepper—but we won’t lie… a pat of Black Truffle Butter just might make this “grass” take flight. Ah, there’s the sparrow connection! The 12-ounce package is quick to prepare and economical to procure at $2.99.
