Facts. Finds. Flavors.
When selecting asparagus, make sure stems are stiff, not rubbery. Snap bottoms off asparagus to trim ends; they will naturally separate at the woody part.
Asparagus can be blanched 1 day in advance and refrigerated.
Blanching vegetables helps to retain their bright color and keep them crisp. Once vegetables are blanched in boiling water, it's very important to immediately plunge them into ice water to stop the cooking process.
