How to Store Asparagus Before You Cook it

This may seem like an odd thing to talk about, but there is actually a trick to storing asparagus so that it stays fresh longer! Here it is: chop off about 1/2 an inch of the bottom of your asparagus, then place them in a large glass filled with water. Loosely cover them with a ziploc bag and then store them in the fridge – in the glass with water, and covered with a bag. They will stay fresh much longer this way!

Raw asparagus keeps well in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Do You Wash Asparagus Before Roasting?

Yes, it’s always a good idea to wash produce under cold running water before cooking with it.

I also like to chop off the woody stems on the bottom of the asparagus. This usually means chopping off about an inch on the bottom. You can tell where to chop because this part of an asparagus stem is tough and woody, so if you bend it it will snap off. (I still use a knife for a cleaner cut.)

How to Roast Asparagus in the Oven

  • Trim the ends of the asparagus and place the asparagus on a baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper, and spread in a single layer.
  • Roast at 425F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender, but crisp. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the asparagus spears.
  • Remove from oven and transfer to a plate.
  • If you want, drizzle with Hollandaise Sauce – you won’t go wrong with that idea – and serve. 

How Long Do Extras Last?

Cooked asparagus keeps well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. You can freeze cooked asparagus for up to 6 months. In both cases, store extras in an airtight container. If storing in the freezer make sure your container is freezer safe.
