Asparagus Spears, Navarrico
Navarrico are a family run business, based in San Adrian, Spain, one of the most fertile regions of the country. They are specialist producers of pulses, fruits and vegetables and grow produce across the Ebro valley in open fields which are irrigated with water from the adjacent river. The local terrain is rocky, which provides excellent drainage, and the changing day to night temperatures both create ideal growing conditions for artichokes, asparagus and peppers, the company’s most popular products.
This white asparagus is in season from April to June. Every spear is hand cut with a curved chisel when it’s ready, having been grown in raised rows under black plastic, which stops the sun from turning the spears green. A team of 25 ensure that every spear is washed, peeled and trimmed before being very briefly scalded in boiling water and then brined in jars.
Each jar contains approximately 8 asparagus spears and weighs 330g (205g drained).
