I bought some lovely asparagus a few weeks ago. On the tag it said to store it in a small amount of water standing upright... in the fridge.
I was skeptical...but, I decided to try it.
I cooked half the bundle the same day I bought it... because I like to have it nice and fresh... but, as a test, I left this bundle in the water in the fridge .. for over a week! You know what happens to asparagus in the crisper..it gets wilty and the tops even get slimy sometimes...ick..... but.... look how firm it stayed. And, when I cooked it... it tasted as good as the day I bought it...
What a great tip. Definitely put your unused stalks in a container and save it for another day... no more wrecked and wasted asparagus!
