Asparagus recipes are most delicious when you use fresh asparagus. Available all year round, fresh asparagus is in season in spring. Whether buying white or green asparagus, make sure it is not dried out.
It is best to peel white asparagus, but there is no need to peel green asparagus. Cut off tough ends before cooking. As a rule of thumb, one bunch of asparagus is about 16 individual spears or about one pound.
Asparagus is good for you and tastes delicious if prepared the right way. Even kids can enjoy this yummy vegetable. So try these easy asparagus recipes.
