How to Store Asparagus

One of the biggest staples in our household is asparagus. I could go days without eating just a few spears from my garden but quickly perk up when I realize that fresh asparagus is available for purchase at the store.

Usually when we get fresh asparagus, it will last for about a week or a week and a half before the ends start to get tough. However, there are different ways we can store our asparagus so that it last longer than normal.

Now that your asparagus is starting to look a little wilted, it’s time to preserve the flavor before you waste it all away.

Here Are Some Ways To Preserve Your Asparagus:

Put your asparagus tips in a container of water like a glass or mug with the top left open for air to be able to come in and out. The asparagus tips need air, so do not cover it with a lid.

Refrigerate your asparagus. Get a large, shallow container and lay down a wet paper towel on the bottom. Arrange your tips in one layer on the paper towel and then cover it with another paper towel. Refrigerating your asparagus will keep it fresh for a couple of days, but how long you can store it depends on how fresh the asparagus is to begin with.

Freeze your asparagus tips. Spread 1 to 2 inches of water in a shallow baking pan and place it in the freezer. Once the water is frozen solid, put your asparagus tips on the ice and then cover them with more ice using a second baking sheet. Arrange your asparagus tips so that they are not touching each other. Once again, how long you can store it depends on how fresh the asparagus is to begin with.

How to Roast Asparagus

Simply toss your prepared asparagus with a light drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. You don’t have to serve asparagus plain. You can serve it roasted, and it’s absolutely delicious!

How to Season Asparagus

Asparagus is delicious plain, but it can be hard to keep that way. The stalks are super thin and can easily fall over in the pan. It’s much easier to cook thin asparagus (and of course they’re more tender) if you spear them first to hold them upright during cooking. It’s also the easiest way to cut them into spears when you’re ready to serve.

How To Prepare Asparagus For Roasting

Remove the tough ends where it has broken off, and then clean or peel the tough outer layer. You don’t need to remove the green part, just scrape off any dirt. Set aside. (see pictures below)

Trim and peel asparagus if you wish. I don’t always peel asparagus and I find that it is more flavorful if the skin is left on.

Snap the green part of the stalks off at the point where it naturally breaks. Discard or reserve for another use such as soups, stocks and broths.

How to Steam Asparagus

Put 1 inch of water in a pot large enough to hold your steamer basket. Cover and bring your water to a boil. Add your asparagus and cover the pot, letting it steam for about 5 to 7 minutes.
