How to clean asparagus
The easiest way to clean asparagus is to start by snapping off the woody section at the base of each spear. With a little pressure, a natural break should occur where the stalk starts to get harder. If not, you can always trim it off with a knife. After that, all you need to do is rinse the asparagus under cold water to get rid of any dirt. Pat dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
It’s always better to eat asparagus when it’s as fresh as possible, but if that’s not an option, trim them anyway and stand them up in around an inch of water in the bottom of a glass jar. Cover with a plastic bag and refrigerate for up to five days.
