In late May and early June Germany has an unofficial holiday season - Spargel Time. Spargel is German for asparagus. The Spargel is white
because it is grown under ground. If you go out where it is grown , like in Balitz, you will see long fields with 2 foot high mounds covered
with white plastic where they grow Spargel.

Silke made this wonderful dish with Spargel and small meat balls and a white sauce that was VERY delicious.
Angie and I asked for the recipe, but Silke never gave us one. Guess I will try Googling.Here is a Spargel field
