Labour-intensive to grow, asparagus are the young shoots of a cultivated lily plant. They're considered to be one of the delicacies of the vegetable world, and have a distinct, intense savoury flavour. Sprue is the term for young, very slender asparagus.

Asparagus packs a nutritious punch, with high levels of vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and calcium.
