Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make Ahead
If preparing more than 1 hour in advance, store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Trimming Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
