asparagus

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.
