It’s Time for Asparagus!

April 17, 2023 | Jody Gatewood


It’s Spring! And that means asparagus is in season. I remember growing up on the farm and cutting wild asparagus in the ditch by our house. Now I buy it in the grocery store. My husband loves asparagus so he gets excited for me to make it when it’s in season. His favorite way to have it is roasted. I also like to grill it.

Our Produce Basics section on Spend Smart. Eat Smart. has information on selecting, storing, cleaning and preparing asparagus, including instructions on how to roast and grill it. If cooking with asparagus is new to you, check out our video on how to prepare asparagus.

Some others ways you might prepare it are to cut it up, sauté it and put it in Scrambled Egg Muffins or use it in Cheesy Pasta with Summer Veggies.

Add asparagus to your grocery list and give it a try!
