The Asparagus Bend and Snap

I always try to find the thinner asparagus stalks, I think they just taste better, and they roast in less time.

To clean them, snap off the bottom end, when you bend the stalk it will naturally snap at the breaking point, you can discard the bottom that snapped off.

It’s impractical to do this if you’re making a lot of asparagus, but once you snap one or two stalks to find the breaking point, line them up with the remainder of the bundle on the cutting board and using a chef knife you can trim the rest using the the snapped one as the guide.

Bonus tip: once you get home from the grocery store, place the stem/bottom of the bundle in a coffee mug with water and keep it in your refrigerator, this will keep them fresher longer.
