One beautiful result to the manipulation of man

As impressed as the old school mind is with the concept of manufacturing in the true sense of the word, not everything that man touches is touched for the better. However, man’s way of putting his hand in the growing process of the Asparagus officinalis Linnaeus, results in one beauty to the palate in particular.

Sunlight on the asparagus will begin the photosynthesis which will give the hues of green, and partly purple to the shoot. Making rows of elevated soil, keeps the harvest protected from the sun rays, and once grown, the shoots are cut while in the ground, giving white asparagus.

The white asparagus, a common delicacy around this time in Germany, and other European countries, is a very different experience to the palate than that of the natural green one.
