But have you ever noticed the further you go down the stalk the tougher it gets, almost to the point of becoming a stringy, inedible mess? And if I told you there were a super easy solution to avoiding that annoyance in the future? Well here it is.
|1. Wash asparagus stalks and let dry on paper towel|
|2. Grab asparagus stalk by the base and the tip (get your mind out of the gutter) and gently, yet firmly bend until the stalk breaks in 2|
|3. The stalk will break exactly where the asparagus stops being fresh (i.e. it'll break before the fibrous, stringy part)|
