If you like your body and our planet you should always eat seasonal fruit and vegetables. Germans are super crazy about SPARGEL (asparagus). Everyone is waiting for the Spargel season to start. I get it, they have a fancy phallic shape and make your pee smell funny. Point taken. But there is another fruit I am waiting for each year – the ERDBEERE.
It translates literally to earth berry, meaning strawberry. The beginning of may you can spot the first ripe berries. But those are not the ones I want. For the real ones you need to wait a little bit longer.
As soon as you see Karls pop up shops around town, you know it’s strawberry season. Oh boy, are they good. Seriously Spargel, go home.
