How to Make ASPARAGUS .. TIPS & INFO.

Step-by-Step

  1. CHOOSE:
    Asparagus spears that are crisp, round and straight, with tight pointed tips that have not begun to flower.
    Choose asparagus spears that are the same thickness so that cooking time will be similar.
    Spears that are flat are usually tough.
    One pound makes about 3 servings.
  2. STORE:
    Asparagus should be stored in the refrigerator
    in a plastic bag and used within 3-5 days.
  3. HOW TO USE:
    Was well and trim off about an inch at the
    end of the spear if it is tough.
    Asparagus are best when steamed until just tender.
    They can be laid flat in a steamer or stood upright in a tall pot in about 1 inch of water.
    Cook them for 4-7 minutes or until they are tender.
    Asparagus spears are great served as a hot vegetable, in salads or in
    vegetable and dip platters.
