Ingredients

Asparagus.

How To Store

Wrap the bases of fresh asparagus spears in wet paper towels and keep in plastic bag, in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Asparagus can be stored up to 4 days.

How To Select

Select spears that are bright green, straight and firm with tightly closed tips. Select ones with only an inch or so of the tough, woody base to trim off at the bottom. Look for asparagus with thicker spears, because they will be more tender than the thinner ones.
