Asparagus BasicsOne sure sign of spring is fresh asparagus in the produce aisle. Fat or thin, green, purple, or white, the keys to delicious asparagus are freshness and proper preparation. The plant brings a delicately bright flavor, and notes of subtle acidity, to any dish.
What to Look For: Thickness is a matter of taste. Choose bunches with tightly closed tips and no flowering. Stalks should be bright green and firm (or pale ivory for white asparagus).
