Freezing Asparagus

First, wash the selected spears. Remove the scales from the stalks with a knife and cut off any tough ends. Cut into lengths to fit your container.

Next, you'll want to blanch the asparagus in boiling water for different lengths of time depending on the size of the spears. Small spears need to be blanched for about 2 minutes, medium spears for 3 minutes, and large spears for 4 minutes.

Take out of the water immediately and cool by placing in ice water. Once they are cool, drain and dry the spears well.

Place into freezer bags or other airtight freezer containers. A good way to place them in the container is by alternating tips and stems as you lay them on top of each other. Good luck. (01/31/2010)

A grower at our local farmer's market told me to wash and dry, then put in freezer bags and that's it. It works great. (02/02/2010)
