I bought some asparagus a few days ago (maybe more) and put it into the fridge. I usually put asparagus in water like you see pictured below, but for some reason I forgot this time.
When I went into the fridge to cook it, I could tell that it was old. The asparagus stalks were all wrinkly and had lost their vibrant color.
“NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!”- I thought to myself with disappointment.
But then I tried to salvage the situation, I put the asparagus into a container filled with water. My hope was that the water could bring the asparagus back to life so I could eat it!
Sure enough. The next day for lunch, I took my asparagus experiment out of the fridge to see a wrinkle-free, vibrantly colored asparagus! Which I then cooked for lunch, and it was delicious.
I know that storing asparagus in water will be old news to some of you reading this. But I just thought it was really cool that you can even bring vegetables that have started to go bad, back to their best tasting state of freshness!
