Squeaky Asparagus Tip

A quick tip on how to check the quality of your asparagus.

Asparagus when fresh have a waxy coating on it. Sometimes when you buy store bought or on the farmers market they can be weeks and weeks old and the sugars break down the waxy skin and important nutrients,.

When you buy them if you rub two together they SHOULD make a squeaky noise. If they do then they are rich in nutrients. So the argument about organic being more nutritious is true when you cater into it that you usually get them much fresher before any nutrients are broken down.

PS. for a yummy breakfast if you miss eggs and toast slices... sunny side up or soft boiled eggs and use asparagus to dip into the yolk mmmmmmmm

Another one is - if it is REALLY fresh, there will be sap exuding from the bottom of the stalk. If the bottom of the stalk is dry and woody - it is getting on in age!
