-Buy asparagus that is firm with tips that are compact and bright green
-Bend asparagus slightly and it will snap about 2/3 down the stalk, discard the fibrous bottoms
-Boil water with a dash of lemon juice
-Submerge asparagus for just a minute or two
-Plunge into iced water bath to cool completely
-Saute in butter with salt until just heated though, serve and enjoy.
