How to store your asparagus to stay fresher longer. Do you ever notice at the grocery store asparagus is stored standing up? That's right because asparagus are like flowers.
Buying the Best - Look for asparagus that are plump and straight. Check out the ends and put back any bunches with dry, split, or excessively woody stems as this is a sign of older asparagus. Thin spears are more tender and sweet, while fatter stems have a meatier texture and stronger asparagus flavor.
-Trim off about a inch off the bottom.
-Place in glass with some water and put in fridge.
- Loosely cover the asparagus with a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator for up to a week. If the water looks cloudy, just change it as needed.
