The most straightforward method to prepare asparagus for any cooking application is to hold one of the stems & remove the bottom 1 to 2-inches. It will naturally snap where the stem becomes tough. Be certain to rinse the asparagus under cool water to remove any grit or dirt. If cutting is desired, line up the asparagus on a cutting board & cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces using a chef knife. Use as directed in specific recipe applications.
