    Asparagus Stir-Fry

    Usually, I cook asparagus the day it is purchased. If that is not the case, I use the following method to store the beautiful spears fresh and perky. I wash the asparagus and trim the ends. Then place the spears upright in a glass jar filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover loosely with a plastic bag and store in the fridge for up to 4 days.

    To make the Asparagus Stir-Fry, you will need the following ingredients:
