Ratte is a French cuisine classic, although it may have been known as Asparges. The are a long shape, with a white skin and yellow flesh. They have fewer knobbly bits than the Pink Fir Apple but have the same waxy texture, with a "nutty" flavour.
RECOMMENDED COOKING METHODS
Ratte has a most excellent flavour, is delicious cooked whole with the skins on and used as a salad or boiling potato, hot or cold, sliced or diced. Some French Michelin Restaurants will cook with the skins on, then peel and mash with large quantities of butter. Wonderful!
