My favorite way to store asparagus is to wrap the root ends of the asparagus with wet paper towels. Do not wet the asparagus, it must be dry. Rubber band or tie the asparagus in a bunch or bunches. Wrap the ends with a wet paper towel, about a quarter of the way.
Carefully so you don't break the fragile tips, place in a plastic bag. Lightly squeeze out the air and use a twist tie to seal the bag. I use the same produce bag that was used from the grocery bag. Lay flat in the refrigerator.
Depending on the quality of the paper towel, you may need to use two. This method will keep it from drying out. The asparagus will keep for as long as a week and a bit more.
