Asparagus


From: Happy Dirt Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Durham, NC)

Wonder what it means to “snap the woody ends” of asparagus? While the tip and upper portion of asparagus are tender, the stalks become increasingly fibrous toward the bottom. To snap the “woody ends”, bend the stalk near the bottom and snap in two. If it is difficult to snap, move up the stalk until you find the natural break between the tender and tough portions. Save the woody ends for stock. More info

Asparagus and Lemon Risotto
