Canned Asparagus is U.S. Grade A, cuts and tips.

Asparagus is packed in a 14.5-ounce can, which yields about 1.7 ½-cup servings after cooking and draining.


    • Store unopened cans in a cool, dry place off the floor.

    • Avoid freezing or exposure to direct sunlight. Sudden changes in temperature shorten shelf life and speed deterioration.

    • Store opened asparagus in a tightly covered nonmetallic container and refrigerate. Use within 2 to 4 days.


    • Canned asparagus should be heated only to serving temperature and served soon after heating.

    • Add flavor to canned asparagus by seasoning with herbs and spices including red pepper flakes, thyme, basil, garlic powder, or lemon juice.
