Trimming Asparagus

Stop snapping and start tapping. Fresh asparagus is a treat this time of year so get the most out of each stalk with this easy tip.

Looking for an effective way to remove the woody ends from asparagus? Using a sharp knife, gently tap along the length of each spear, starting at the base. As you work your way up each spear, the knife resists the tough, woody parts, but slices right through the spear when you reach a tender spot.
