Choosing the appropriate asparagus:
When buying the asparagus, one has to pay attention to its spearheads - they have to be tightly closed, with their endings wet. Asparagus should be firm and elastic. The endings of fresh spears should give some juice when squeezed. One should also hear some friction when rubbing two spears against each other.
Storaging the asparagus:
The fresh asparagus, wrapped with a wet cloth can be stored in a refrigerator for the maximum of a few days. However, it is better to prepare it as soon as possible.
