Asparagus

Image of asparagus

Refrigerate fresh asparagus for up to 5 days.

  • Stand stalks in 1 inch of water like a flower bouquet and cover with a plastic bag OR Wrap cut ends in a damp paper towel and cover the towel with plastic.

Wash under cool running water just before using. Remove tough ends:

  • Hold an end of the stalk in each hand and gently bend OR Less waste: cut off and discard the bottom inch of the stalks, then peel tougher base ends.
