Some recipes are already years old and tastes perhaps precisely because of the nostalgia as well. NU.nl asks her readers to special recipes from their family. This week tells Caroline Neela Fritzsche (31) from Neerijnen about the white asparagus soup from her mother.
When her parents on 1 June 1976 married,, and they had asparagus for dinner. That was certainly at that time was a real luxury product, says Fritzsche. From then on, they ate of the ‘white gold’ every year on 1 June.
A splash of coffee creamer
The asparagus were still in a different way prepared. Favorite Fritsche is the white-asparagus soup. “I’m crazy about asparagus. Especially if they are very soft. Such as in this soup.”
Her mother made the soup by bouillon to make the water of boiled asparagus and the peelings. “And at the end she adds a splash of coffee creamer.”
Fritzsche has the recipe been modified slightly: the evaporated milk is replaced by single cream. “To make the soup a bit thicker, I butter and flour added to it. I also do some herbs and cream.”
They try the tradition is still maintained. If the asparagus around 1 June in the offer, she knows what she is going to make. “I still think it’s really a treat.”
