German recipes for the most part use White Asparagus. Since I am in the United States I use green for the most part..
Green can be substituted for white however some folks will say the green has a stronger flavor.

Here are some basic Spargel cooking Techniques. More recipes below.

Probably the most traditional meal celebrating Spargel season in Germany is,

Spargel Klassisch

Weiss Spargel mit Schinken
(White asparagus with thin sliced ham)
almost always a hollandaise sauce,
other accompaniments like potatoes and fresh strawberries
make a full meal.
