Asparagus spears can be thick or thin but most important factor is to select those straight, firm, uniformly sized spears with closed tips. Since asparagus deteriorates rapidly try to select bundles that are refrigerated or on ice. And take note is it best to used it within two or three days of purchase.
You can eat asparagus with nothing more than a drizzle of good-quality olive oil or use them in different dishes like: in soups, salads, stir-fries, scrambled eggs, pasta and etc. Do check up my latest recipe on Caramel Olive Asparagus shown below.
