Keep Asparagus Fresh In The Fridge Using A Jar Of Water

This Sparked Me!

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.
