Asparagus-How To

What to Look For:

Choose shiny green spears with tight, compact tips. Don’t get bunches that are dry and-or-bruised. The stalks you purchase should be firm, with no cracks on the cut end.

How to Store:

Remove the bands that are wrapped around the bunches; the can trap moisture and accelerate spoilage of the asparagus. Bundle the stalks in damp paper towels and put in a plastic bag (don’t close airtight). Stalks will keep in the crisper for up to two days.
