ASPARAGUS WITH SAUCE HOLLANDAISE

They said that, white asparagus is a German specialty and everyone likes to eat it. It comes in the springtime and is served at dinner parties all over EUROPE. But I prefer the green ones. If you are like me, buy a quantity of asparagus and try this RECIPE of mine!

The asparagus appears after an early spring rain, if firm, fast growing rungs from the short underground stalks. Shortly thereafter the neck appears to the elegant, oblong plant with a bud on the point and sheets spiral put on before the eyes of the farmers, whose edges look. If they are not picked, they develop later into a plant with branched stalks, a small thorny bush, weeds with sharp sheets and stinging leagues branches.
