What you get
Asparagus is high in folic acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber and vitamins A, B6 and C.
- Shopping Tip
- Look for sturdy spears with tight heads; the cut ends should not look dried out, wrinkled or woody. Fresh asparagus should snap when bent. Buy the freshest you can find and plan to use it within a day or two.
- Storage Tip
- If you need to store asparagus, trim the ends of spears and stand them upright in about an inch of water. (Leave the spears bundled together with a rubber band or pick a round container roughly the size of your bunch to keep them upright.) Cover with plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Or wrap the ends with damp paper towel and store in a plastic bag for up to 3 days.
