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

Asparagus is packed in a 2.5-pound bag, which yields about 10 ½-cup servings after cooking.

• Store unopened frozen asparagus at 0°F or below until ready to use.

• Temperature changes shorten shelf life and speed deterioration.

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

• Add frozen asparagus to ½ cup boiling water in a saucepan. After water boils again, reduce temperature. Cover and simmer until tender.

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

• Add flavor to frozen asparagus by seasoning with herbs and spices such as thyme, oregano, dill, or lemon juice.

Serve frozen asparagus as a side dish, or use in a variety of main dishes, soups, appetizers, casseroles, and salads.
