Got Wilted Asparagus?
If you buy fresh asparagus you have probably experienced asparagus wilt after the bunch has been in the fridge for a while. You know it gets all droopy, soft and looks like it needs to be tossed out… I was surprised to learn how many people don’t know that the limp asparagus is NOT bad.
Asparagus are like cut flowers, they need water to stay firm and crisp! If you have mushy wilted asparagus in the fridge don’t throw it out, just stand the the bunch in a shallow bowl of water (cut ends down)! They will perk right up after about 8-12 hours and will be all firm and crisp again.
And now my wordless Wednesday contribution:

Thanks for the asparagus tip. To think, I have thrown away so much for nothing…how sad!

Wow! What a fabulous lily! Sorry, I had to say that first because it is such a gorgeous flower and a great photo!
Oh – I never knew that about asparagus! I knew it about celery though so I guess they are similar that way. Great tip – thanks for sharing! This deserves stumbling so others will know.
