Blanch then freeze. Several companies sell frozen asparagus and it cooks well in the microwave, just don't over cook!

Pressure canning also gives it the same consistency as buy canned asparagus.

Asparagus contains too much water to freeze well. It goes mushy, but you can still use it in soups and sauces. Yummy! emoticon

Yes, you can freeze asparagus. It gets somewhat mushy but is still tasty. It needs to be blanched before freezing.

Is it possible to freeze asparagus? Does it get mushy or stay crisp? If it stays crisp how do I go about doing it?

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why arenít more people happy?
