Organic Asparagus 

Organic asparagus is grown using environmentally sustainable farming methods. No synthetic pesticides or fertilisers are
used when asparagus is grown organically. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not used in organic production. 

Asparagus is a versatile vegetable that is sometimes compared to broccoli or beans. It can be added to salads, sauteed 
or steamed. 

How to keep asparagus fresh

To keep asparagus spears as fresh as possible, stand them upright in a glass filled with about 2cm of water, place them in
the refrigerator, then keep them covered with  a plastic bag. Alternatively, you can wrap them in a clean, damp cloth and
store them in the crisper section of the refrigerator. Using either of these methods will keep the  asparagus spears crisp
for three days.

 

How to prepare fresh asparagus for cooking

The first step in asparagus preparation is to cut off the woody ends. You can find where to cut the spears by bending them -
there is a point where you will find that they can break easily. After that it is a simple matter of washing the spears and using
a vegetable peeler to peel the outer layer about half way up - this will help the spear to cook more quickly. Cooking should
commence as soon as possible after preparation.

Asparagus spears can be boiled, steamed, blanched, grilled, sauteed or roasted.
