During a visit to Germany, I was introduced to all things asparagus. Nothing says spring is here in Germany like a beautiful bunch of crisp, white asparagus, or as they call it, spargel!

Wild onions were among the first foods that mankind gathered and ate, and are one of the first signs of spring. Onions are in the allium family, along with garlic and shallots.

They're also called green onions, young onions, pencil onions and scallions.
