How to Cook
Fill a skillet large enough to lay asparagus spears in with ½ inch of water.  Bring water to a boil and add 20 large spears or 3-4 cups of cut asparagus and ½ - 1 tsp. salt.  Return to boil then reduce heat and cook 5-7 mins or until tender crisp.  Drain and serve.

How to Freeze
Cut or break off ends.  Wash thoroughly.  Sort according to thickness of stalks.  Leave whole or cut into 1-2 inch lengths.  Water blanch small stalks 1 ½ - 2 mins, medium stalks 2 – 3 mins and large stalks 3 – 4 mins.  Put in freezer bag.
