Fresh asparagus is a great vegetable to have on hand for snacking, a quick side, or to include in recipes. In this video, Phoebe shows you how to store asparagus to help the asparagus stay fresh longer.
The best way is to keep the asparagus bunch together and get a cup about the same size as the bunch of asparagus. Then, fill the cup with about an inch of water and place the asparagus in the cup. Finally, take a plastic bag and place over the top of the asparagus, then seal the plastic bag slightly and place the asparagus in the fridge. This should help your asparagus stay fresh for about two weeks!

00:00:02.401 --> 00:00:05.651
Fresh asparagus is a great vegetable
to have on hand for the week ahead.
00:00:05.651 --> 00:00:09.177
I'm Phoebe Lapine and I'm going
to show you the best way to store
00:00:09.177 --> 00:00:11.610
your asparagus so it stays fresher longer.
00:00:11.610 --> 00:00:16.576
So when you buy it at the store it usually
comes in a bunch, and the best way to keep
00:00:16.576 --> 00:00:20.450
it is to get a cup that's roughly
the same size as your bunch.
00:00:20.450 --> 00:00:22.940
Fill it up with an inch or so of water and
00:00:22.940 --> 00:00:28.250
then place the asparagus in it like
you would a bouquet of flowers.
00:00:28.250 --> 00:00:32.120
And just make sure all of the stalks
are submerged in the water so
00:00:32.120 --> 00:00:35.410
that they can stay nice and hydrated.
00:00:35.410 --> 00:00:39.755
Take a regular plastic bag,
put it over the top.
00:00:42.551 --> 00:00:47.921
And then just pinch in
the sides to lock in the air.
00:00:47.921 --> 00:00:50.840
So the last step, stick it in the fridge.
00:00:50.840 --> 00:00:54.241
And this should keep for about two weeks
for all of your cooking pleasures.
00:00:54.241 --> 00:00:59.049
