How to Cook Fresh Asparagus
Place asparagus in 2-qt. microwaveable casserole. Add 1/3 cup water; cover with lid. Microwave on HIGH 4 to 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Drain well before using as desired.
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.
