Review: Fosters All Natural Pickled Asparagus Spears

Published 02:00 am

I was shopping at Costco when I saw two big jars of asparagus wrapped together in plastic.

I love asparagus, so I grabbed the two jars and put them in my cart. When I got home I discovered they were pickled asparagus. I had never eaten pickled asparagus before, but I decided I would give them a try instead of returning them.

Ingredients

The ingredients in Foster's All Natural Pickled Asparagus Spears are asparagus, vinegar, water, salt, sugar, spices, garlic. It also states it may contain wheat. (I don't know if this is because it is processed with equipment which is also used to process wheat or if there is a possibility of wheat getting mixed in during harvesting.)

Taste

I had no idea what pickled asparagus would taste like, but when I opened the jar they smelled somewhat like dill pickles. And I found they do taste much like what I would imagine asparagus would taste like if it were soaked in dill pickle brine with a touch more vinegar.

Quality

The asparagus spears are about five inches long and all appear to be of high quality. They do not droop and they crunch like a dill pickle when eaten. There are no chopped up or odd colored pieces. There are some little green flecks floating in the brine but the jar states these are rutin which is drawn out of the asparagus by the vinegar.

My Conclusion

I like Foster's All Natural Pickled Asparagus Spears and eat them as a snack. I found they taste great on Ritz crackers with cheese. Just cut the spears in about one inch pieces and put them on Ritz crackers with the cheese of your choice. They can be added to salads or to garnish a dish or used in a Bloody Mary (I don't drink--this is according to the jar). Since I haven't eaten pickled asparagus before my judgment of the taste may not be the best, but I like the taste.

I also like the fact they are packed in Pasco, Washington since Washington is my home state. According to a news article, Pickled Asparagus Prime Product for Franklin Couple, the asparagus is grown on their family farm in Franklin County, Washington in the Columbian Basin not far from Walla Walla where the Walla Walla sweet onions are grown.
