Known as the “King of Vegetables”, this perennial plant has an earthy taste and is a significant source of vitamin C, potassium, and is loaded with fiber.
Asparagus can be roasted, grilled, steamed, or sautéed, making this delicious veggie a healthy crowd pleaser!
Eat asparagus as soon after they're harvested as possible because the natural sugars can turn to starch and ruin the flavor. That's why it's best to buy your asparagus at the farmers' market for just-picked flavor!
Green, White, Purple
Select bright green asparagus with closed, compact, firm tips. Avoid wilted or limp stalks, as that is a sign of age.
Wrap the stem ends in a damp paper towel for several days. To extend the life, refrigerate stalks, tips up in a cup of shallow water.
