Asparagus: Some Straight Stalk
Storage Trim the bottoms of the stalks and wrap them in a wet paper towel. You can refrigerate them for up to 3 days. Or you can cut the ends off and put them in a glass of water with a plastic bag over them and store them in the fridge. Either way, when they begin to get slimy, it’s time to toss and visit the market again. Recipes
