Helpful tips on how to choose and prepare asparagus

asparagus recipe


Which asparagus should you choose: pencil-thin or big and fat?  Larger asparagus spears have better flavor, due to maturity.  Still, a fatter spear can mean a tougher outer fiber.   

Kitchen Tip 

Lay the spears on top of a large overturned stock pot and use your peeler to remove a few strips of the outer stalk, working away from you with the peeler.  Trim the end of each spear and proceed with your recipe.
