Best to buy
The peak season for fresh asparagus lasts from February through June.
Cut & clean
Wash thoroughly under cool water to remove dirt or grit. Cut off tough ends.
Grill to perfection
Grilling is an excellent, easy way to cook asparagus. Simply add spears to grill for 3 to 5
minutes for a great addition to your salad or
a simple, healthy side.
Asparagus is a good source of vitamin C and folic acid.
Immerse clean stalks in boiling water, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes—until they
are bright green. Toss with olive oil and add
salt and pepper to taste.
