Asparagus and Bolzano sauce are a winning combination especially with regard to the traditional cuisine of northern Italy and in particular of the Bolzano area.

This clearly applies in spring, when it is possible to buy fresh asparagus in season and in particular the variety of white asparagus. Characterized by a delicate and sweet taste, white asparagus owe their color to the fact that they are harvested before they come out of the ground in order to prevent them from turning green with the light thanks to chlorophyll photosynthesis.


Keep the sauce in a glass container and cover it with EVO oil, then store it tightly closed in the refrigerator for a maximum of 2-3 days . We do not recommend freezing.
