Tuesday Tip of the Day ~The Best Way to Store Asparagus ~~and link to recipe for Parmesan Garlic Roasted Asparagus

It's asparagus season.
It is fresh and abundant...
and the price is right, too.

The best way to keep it fresh, to prevent it from drying out...
Cut about an inch from the bottom of the stems and place in a container with about an inch or two of water.

Make sure all the tips are in the water.
For longer storage, place a plastic bag over the top and keep in your refrigerator.
Change the water when it becomes cloudy.

We have made this in the oven or out on the grill.

It's a delightful side dish.

  1. I love asparagus. Wrap mine in bacon, and grill it for just a second or two. Yum. Thanks for the tip!
