Start with fresh asparagus from the market. The fresher the better!

Asparagus will keep for a week or more in the refrigerator if you store it properly. Asparagus stalks are similar to flower stems: they need to be kept upright and moist to stay fresh. Learn how to store either fresh  asparagus to help it last as long as possible.

Keep the rubber band on to hold the bunch together, and trim an inch off the ends of the asparagus.

Stand the asparagus up in a glass or jar with about an inch or two of water, making sure all the ends are sitting in the water. We’ve found that a 2-cup measuring cup is a great container.

Loosely cover the asparagus with a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator for up to a week. If the water looks cloudy, just change it as needed.
