  • Nutrition value is only for asparagus fries.
  • Trim asparagus first:
    1. Hold the woody end of the asparagus between your thumb and index finger and bend it until it snaps off. It should snap cleanly off.
    2. Neatly stack your remaining asparagus spears next to the asparagus you snapped. Use it as a guide to cut off the woody ends of the remaining asparagus using a sharp kitchen knife.
