Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do I Need to Trim Asparagus?

The ends of asparagus are tough, woody, and stringy. The texture is unpleasant and the ends are difficult to chew and digest. Always wash and trim your asparagus before use.

Is It Better to Snap or Cut Asparagus?

Although cutting asparagus is faster because you can trim the whole bunch at once, you may end up with some ends that are still tough and woody (not enough was cut off) or wasting asparagus by cutting to much. For best results, bend and snap the asparagus. It will naturally break at the right spot.

What’s the Best Way to Store Asparagus?

To extend the life of your asparagus in the refrigerator, stand the stalks up in a drinking glass with a little water placed in the bottom, as if they were an arrangement of flowers.

Best Pairings for Asparagus

Asparagus pairs well with meats, seafood, and is an excellent addition to pastas and salads. For a stellar healthy side side, top roasted asparagus with lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.
