This veggie is best during the spring months. Learn how to pick, store and use asparagus:
Choose firm bright green stalks with tight tips.
Store upright in a glass filled with an inch of water.
Snap off the woody ends -- they'll break off naturally.
Rinse to remove any grit, especially around the tips.
Peel tough parts of the stem using a vegetable peeler.TRY THESE RECIPES:
