I told you I would let you in on a great way to keep your Asparagus fresh longer. I do this with fresh cut vegetables & herbs. Take a wide mouth mason jar or a glass and fill it with a little bit of cold water-- then place your asparagus,cilantro, dill, spearmint, basil, celery ect. into the water and put it in your refridgerator. They will keep fresh so much longer... during the summer I do this with all the fresh herbs from the garden, then they are ready to use-- I find that I use them more in the things I cook when they are already cut & easy to grab!
