*What is the best way to trim asparagus?
There is the tried and true method for those slender spears—the bend and snap. If this is the way that you choose to go, we're not going to argue. Look, some of us still do that and feel great about it so we're not going to throw any shade your way. However...have you ever thought that maybe that way is a little inefficient? If you take a look at your stalks, you can see where the rough part starts (where the stem starts to fade to white) and just chop that off, all at once. The bend and snap takes longer and you might find that you're wasting some of the spring deliciousness you've been waiting for.
