Is it better to snap or cut asparagus?
Snapping is a quick and easy way to get asparagus ready to cook. While peeling asparagus yields a more elegant presentation, as well as more edible asparagus, in the final analysis, snapping is faster.
Is it better to cut or break asparagus?
THE BOTTOM LINE: You'll throw away more asparagus if you snap off the ends, and the spears won't look as long and elegant. For many reasons, we think trimming and peeling is worth the effort. SNAPPED: Snapping the natural breaking point means losing half the weight of almost every spear.
What can I do with the woody ends of asparagus?
The best way to judge where to cut off the stalk is by tasting it. Cut off the very end, taste, and if it is fibrous, cut off a little more and try again. When you find the point where it becomes tender, cut the bunch and save the ends to make asparagus stalk soup.
When should asparagus be cut back?
Ideally, asparagus should be cut back in the fall but it is important that you wait until all of the foliage has died back and turned brown or yellow. This will normally happen after first frost, but it can happen without frost in areas that do not receive frost.
Why do chefs peel asparagus?
Large asparagus stalks tend to be much thicker at the bottom than at the top, so peeling makes them more uniform and they will cook more evenly.
Should asparagus be crunchy or soft?
Undercooked asparagus, crunchy and forbidding, can taste like a punishment. But if you simmer asparagus long enough to cook it through, its texture becomes soft and almost creamy, and its lovely flavor comes into full bloom.
What happens if you overcook asparagus?
Asparagus can be cooked using several methods. Whatever method is used, it is important to not overcook the asparagus. Overcooking will deplete the flavor and the texture of the asparagus will become mushy. Cook it only to a crisp-tender.
