How do you trim asparagus?
I’m adding this little tip on how to trim asparagus in here because if you haven’t worked with it before you may be a little intimidated. Don’t be! Trimming asparagus is super easy!
Here’s a pro tip when it comes to trimming asparagus – the spears will snap naturally where it starts to get tough. So simply bend the spear from the bottom while holding it at about the mid-point, and it will break off at the spot where it begins to get tender.
If you don’t want to mess with your asparagus spear by spear, you can cut the bottoms off of the entire bunch with a knife for uniform length – usually 2 inches up from the bottom is safe.
If your spears are more than 1/4 inch in diameter, rather than waste perfectly good asparagus, simply shave off the bottom 2 inches of woody exterior with a vegetable peeler, leaving the tender edible interior exposed.
