Shopping Tip 

Stalks should be plum

and firm.

The color can be green, purple or white.

Depending on the variety.

Skip ones that look like the color is fading.

A good grocer will chill asparagus, or stand it upright in container

with water.

Storage 
Tip

Asparagus tastes best when cooked the day you buy it.

If not,store them as you would store cut flowers.

 

 Trim the bottoms and stand the asparagus up in a glass or jar with about an inch of water.
