Tips
  • Wrap bottom of asparagus stalks in damp paper towel, then refrigerate in an unsealed plastic bag.
  • To freeze: (1) Wash thoroughly and trim stalks by removing scales with a sharp knife; (2) Cut asparagus into even-sized pieces; (3) Blanch (plunge into boiling water) for three minutes and chill quickly in ice cold water; (4) Drain off excess moisture, package in airtight containers or freezer bags and freeze immediately.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
