Keep Asparagus Fresh In The Fridge Using A Jar Of Water
Members Were Sparked
To keep asparagus fresh, put them in the fridge standing up in a jar with an inch or two of water, like flowers in a vase. An old peanut butter jar or glass measuring cup works well.
The water replenishes what they "breathe out" in the fridge, so they stay crisp and fresh. The heads don't rot as fast this way as when you put them in the crisper in their plastic bag.

A trick to perking up carrots and other veggies that have wilted/got a bit soft is to place the carrots in a bowl of cold water in the fridge overnight. For spinach/asparagus, place in a tall upright container with fresh cold water in the fridge. You'll see a noticeable result :) Happy cooking!
